    hmmmm that is strange... have you checked your leading? If you're not sure change it to auto and try again... if you are using something like 24 pt type and have the leading set to 350 pt there's a good possibility that it is just running off the page.

    You'll have to settle for separate layers.

    You're hitting the "Enter" key on the numeric keypad.
    Instead use the "Return" key (sometimes it is labeled "enter" with an arrow under it).

    I'll second the leading. Double or triple click to select all the text and then set it to -5 or something just so you can see it and then adjust accordingly.

    Try This

    How to reset Photoshop preferences (In Windows):

    1. First, hold down all three Ctrl+Alt+Shift buttons
    2. Now "while keeping those button held," simply open Photoshop or a file that opens with Photoshop
    3. As Photoshop loads, you should get a prompt asking if you would like to "delete the Photoshop settings file", Click yes

    You should now have a fresh slate with all of the settings returned to their default.

    When you select the type tool are you drawing a text box or are you just clicking on the page and starting to type?. If you draw a text box and type into it and press enter your text may be cut short because your text box is too small or your line spacing in the characters box may be too big.

    If you are just clicking on the page with the text tool without drawing a box with it you should be able to hit enter and drop to the next line, just make sure that in your character pallette that your line spacing isnt too big (usually the same as your font size is good to go)

    You sounded as if you wanted multiple text elements on the same layer.
