LW 8.3, P4, dual Xeon 2.4 gh, 4 gig ram, too more than enough storage

I have a project where I am using text. The Multi-Text function will not allow me to input text and the Text button will not allow me to modify my text attributes.

Anyone experience this?

If either button is greyed out, try rescanning your plugins. Afterthat you could try resetting your menus.
Another possiblity is Lw doeas not know what typefaces to use. You may have to specify what typefaces Lightwave can use. I just checked, and this last option will give an error message telling you to select typefaces. Create>Text>Manage Fonts or F10.

I can load fonts and even use them with the single line TEXT button. But in no way can I enter text using multi text after the input requester has opened. I can select a line but no text will input on to to it.
