    Hi in PS7 I had the ability to go back at a later date and edit a layer that had text. Simply select the layer and click on the text and edit it.

    Now in CS5.5 when I click on the text I get a new layer added. Even though I have the text selected in the left hand tool box.

    What gives ???

    It still works the same. There are two issues here:
    1: Select the text layer you want to edit.
    2: After selecting the text tool, make sure you place the cursor on the
    line of text you want to edit before clicking to place the cursor in,
    or behind the text on the line, or selecting the block of text with the
    text tool cursor. If not, CS5 will function as if you want to add
    another text layer.

    So, just be aware of where you place that text cursor before making the
    edit selection.
