[Solved] Text box is created but it disappears

 Edit: Split from Locking items in Impress
This seems to be a new subject and needs a new topic. Topics are not related just because the come from the same person. 
I've been using drawing, and made the background by exporting the items as a bitmap and locking it on a layer in a new document.
When I go to put a text box over the background layer, the text box is created but it disappears.
Sometimes the text will flash up for a sec if I click around to find it, and I can then edit it, but once I click off it, it disappears.
I've tried Arrange > 'Bring to front' & Arrange > 'In front of object', but it still stays hidden. I've tried it a couple times, and tried it on different layers.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
Thank you very much

Thank you for your help,
I've just made a new document for my project instead, as it was hard for me to send a sample.

I must have chosen a setting on the last one which caused a problem.
It seems to be working properly on the new one.

Thank you!
