Resolution for an issue when boxes appear when typing text in titles.

What is the issue?

When inserting text within titles using my language of choice, boxes appear.

Why is this happening?

The “boxes” are a result of the default font style within the titles not supporting the characters of the inputted language.  In the above example image, the font style Arial was listed as the default. However, the Arial font style does not support the inserted characters.

How can I fix this issue?

Once you’ve selected a title and come across the “boxes” when typing in your language of choice, it is recommended that you switch to a font style that supports that language.

  1.  Tap on the title on your mobile device, tablet, or desktop.

  2. Select the layer option in the Title panel and ensure that the layer containing text is already selected. Alternatively, you can select the desired text from directly from the preview window. With either option, ensure that all your desired text is highlighted in blue.
