    I have tried the above instructions numerous times, and I just get my text going overtop of the instructional text.  How do I remove the intructional text and replace with mine.  This feature was working yesterday, but to day, it just is not functioning.

      Hey @ iqassoc1 ,

      Thank you for contacting Wix support.

       

      I had just gone through your editor and I had no issues editing the text.

       

      In order to fix the problem we must isolate its source. 

      For that purpose, please:
      1. Try again using another browser.
      2. Try again using another computer.
      3. Try again using a different internet connection.

      Please let us know if any of the above changed the status of your problem.

       

       

      Thank you and we await your reply,

      Nir

    Hi I am also not able to edit the text within my text boxes even by doubleclicking. It seems this is a fault in the template as I was able to when I first opened it but its not working now????

    Do I need to start over with a new template?

      Hi,

      Please make sure to update your browser to Safari 6 or use another browser while we work on fixing the issue.


      Wix supports all major browsers (including IE, Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari), and all of those browsers support the ability to export favorites and bookmarks to the newly installed browser.

      To download the latest Google Chrome browser please click  here
      To download the latest Firefox browser please click  here
      To download the latest Safari browser please click  here
      To download the latest Internet Explorer browser please click  here
       
      Best regards.

      Thanks, but this has not helped. I cannot upgrade to Safari 6 as mac is older model.

      Have downloaded Google Chrome and have the same issue with uneditible text in my template.

      So it looks like your template is faulty. Its very frustrating when you are halfway through designing it and it doesnt want to alter text!

      I was working in the "Curriculum Vitae" template under Design > Portfolio.

      If you are able to re-enable the text editing issue - let me know via email.

      Thanks

      we can't seem to be able to recreate the problem you've reported on and it all comes to the obsolete browser version you're using.

      Please update or use a different browser and the problem will resolve itself

    I double click text to edit, however, the editor is not allowing me to change any text in the template I chose.

      What do you mean by "not allowing", could you please elaborate? What are you trying to do and can't?

    Do you have a strikethrough option available?

      Hi,

       

      Unfortunately this isn't possible at the moment with the options in the Wix editor.

      However, you can find a workaround to this issue here, so you will be able to use strikethrough.

       

      Please let us know if you require any further assistance.
