PI2000: "Type Your Text" Window Is Empty and Text Disappears After You Edit Text Object

This article was previously published under Q248552


When you edit text in Microsoft Picture It! 2000, the selected text may disappear after you click Done.


This behavior occurs if you attempt to apply the Remove Scratch effect from the Touchup menu to any text object. When you do this, you receive the following error message:

You've selected an object on which the Remove Scratch task does not work. Please click another object, and then try Remove Scratch again.

If you then attempt to edit text by using the Text command on the Edit menu, the Type your text window is empty and the text disappears after you click Done.


There is currently no resolution to this problem.

You need to retype all of the text in the Type your text window if you edit the text after you attempt to apply the Remove Scratch effect.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Picture It! 2000.
