I have just completed my PhotoBook, in iPhoto, with text on a number of pages. My text is visible until I select it so that I can make a few corrections, then it disappears. Where is it going? I have had no problem up until this morning, changing as I want, now I cannot select it so I can correct it.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3), iPhoto '11, version 9.4.3

    annie.e, does the text completely vanish, when you select it, or does the text reappear, when you deselect it again?

    That is, is the selected text only displayed incorrectly when highlighted, or is it deleted from the book, when you highlight it?


    What is the book theme you are using? Does it have a dark or a light background for the text?

    Before ordering the book make a PDF copy of it as described in this Apple document: iPhoto, Aperture: Previewing an order in iPhoto or Aperture. Check the PDF file for any errors, text, photos, etc. before ordering.  Also keep the PDF file for reference to compare to the hard copy when you receive it.
