    You probably have opened a blank Layout mode template which has no default text area.


    There are 2 kinds of templates, Word Processing templates which flow from page to page and which you can just type into, and Layout templates which require you to create text boxes to type into.


    See the sidebar in the Template Chooser to see which is which.
