I just switched to Pro and I'm having the hardest time working with text. I select the type tool, it creates some text. I go in and edit the text and the text box itself turns into a 9px height box. Therefore I can't seem to select the text, move the text, or edit the text.

I'm also realizing I can't seem to figure out how to create text on two lines.

Hey there, I think you might be looking to create bounded text boxes rather than text lines. There's a little more info about doing this in our user guide:

In short, to create a bounded box instead of a line, you'll need to select the Type tool, then drag anywhere in your image, rather than simply clicking.
