Creating text for labels titles etc.

I have inserted text in the past easily. I realise it has to go on a new track that it will not show up if the editing line isn't actually covering it. I know all about editing etc etc BUTon my present project I have inserted the text as usual and there it is on the special track and there is a black rectangle on the underlying video but there is no text, no sample text , no nothing. The black text container behaves as it should. I have checked the settings of the text input box i.e. colour, etc but no good. Help?

Which (Titles&Text?) preset are you using? I assume you played it through and still did not see any text?

Can you post an image of the timeline so we can see what you are seeing?

Where is the black rectangle coming from?

Make sure that the text font is not black characters. Black characters will not sure up on a black background.
