Hi--I'm brand new here! Today I worked on two files. I wanted to edit one of them - it is a very simple file -- one image and a few text boxes and a solid background. However, when i went back to it, I cannot edit it. It will not let me open any text boxes, I cannot click on the image or the background to edit anything. The only layer that shows up in the list or thumbnail is "Background Layer." Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you.

Hi Amy.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but things like boxes and text will show up as objects in the layers list. Are you maybe looking at an exported version of your image or have you flattened the layers by converting them to pixels?

A quick sanity check would be to go to File > Open Recent and see if there are maybe multiple copies of the file you are looking at...

Hope this helps.

- Stef.
