when I create a new textfield and try to edit the "Text", I can type what I want, nothing changes. It still reads only "Text".
I can change the font-size, the font and make it bold or italic, but I can't get any text into the field.
I restarted Pixelmator several times and created new documents, just to test it, but it was the same every time.

Just, if you're wondering: when I deselect the textfield and type on my keyboard, Pixelmator begins to select the different tools, associated with the different keys. Pixelmator seems to get input from my keyboard...

Hi there, it sounds like you're having the same issue as the people in this thread:


If you could send us an email at, we can share a beta version of Pixelmator with a fix.

P.S. I'd generally advise avoiding beta versions of macOS as these kinds of issues can pop up from time to time, so if you need Pixelmator (and other apps) to function reliably, stick to the stable, public releases.

Ah, thank you! I don't know, why the thread didn't pop up in my search... Sorry, for opening a new one.
I'll talk to the support per email. Thank you a lot!
