Only a box appears when entering text

Charles42
Hi, I'm a new user running version 2.2.0-rc3-34-g0037f14a on a macbook.
When entering text all that appears is a box with no text. I've read the forums and Draft mode is not set on my drawing. What other attributes may be set incorrectly?

Thank you.

There was an issue reported on Linux, where fonts and other resources were not found.
This probably happens on MacOS too.
You can try latest 2.2.0-rc4-... where this issue should be solved.

It's still buggy but I can work with it.
When placing text it appears. I can add lines, boxes etc. and the text still remains. I can zoom with no issue. I can pan using the side & bottom bars and no issue. If I use the pan tool on the toolbar, all text reverts to empty boxes.
If I close and reopen the drawing all the text reappears.

This is just some knowledge for reference. I can work with the program this way.

I'm using a Macbook pro running macOS Monterey V 12.6, processor is Dual-core Intel core i5, Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640 1536 MB

Thank you again.

Same issue with pan function changing text to box outlines, and same work around by closing and re-opening file.

Many thanks for reporting.

I just created an issue on github for this.

Another work around is using the middle mouse button for panning.
