Are you putting the text on a new track?

You don't drag it on the same track as the video.

And the new text has to be above the video track, not below it.
Vegas reads things from the top down so it wouldn't be seen if it was underneath the video track.

Ahh, Bingo
Thanks guys. Strangly enough, when going through the Vegas tutorial, It says to drag directly onto the video track. Inserting a new video track on top of the video track did the trick.

I would guess the tutorial means "a" video track, not "the" video track. Since you can have an unlimited number of them, it's hard to identify which one is "the" one.
