I'm a new user for Affinity Photo. I've bought it today and started using it. My problem is that I can't find the text tool on the left bar along side with the brush and other tools. I found all the text editing dialogue but I can't type to begin with.

It should be there right between pen, rectangle and zoom tool. Notice that there are 2 versions selectable, art text and text frame.

Noon, you might try selecting the "Customize Tools..." item from the View menu (it is next to the last item on that menu) & looking for the text tool icons in the panel that pops up. There should be three of them, a "Frame Text" with a triangle in the corner that is the combined Frame & Art one followed by a pair for each individual tool. Drag which ever of these you want onto the Tools panel at whatever position you want.

I found it, thank you.

I found this thread because I had the exact same problem on my Mac. My problem was that when the program opened, it didn't open 'full screen' and the bottom of the app was cut off. After opening the app in full screen the missing bottom two icons, including the text tool became visible.

MODS... picking @Patrick Connor as a mention...

This is more than annoying... happens in all the browsers all the platforms (Linux, macOS, Win) so it's not a browser issue.
Copypasting smaller images (not gifs) directly to the post are sometimes works, most of the time doesn't. Certainly never works with animated gifs.
