What version of AC / localization and what operating system?
Either the Arrow/selection tool is active, or you have the shift key depressed, when double-clicking inside the text box? Do you have the magnet turned on for the arrow/selection tool (you would see a magnet next to the arrow if so). No issues for me for any release of AC on MacOS.

it is possible that sometimes when you try to edit a text some other tool is active when you dbl click on the text, rather than having the Arrow Tool active when you dbl click on it. ? That can happen when you use the escape key to let go of something, move the cursor to a text and try to edit it. You always need to have the Arrow Tool active when you edit a text, not just have the cursor on the text. Which means you must select the text - then dbl click on it. ?? Also, make sure the Quick Selection ( horseshoe shaped icon is active) ?
The Cursor is not the same as the Selection Arrow. So perhaps you see the mouse cursor over the text ( which might look like the Arrow Tool) when you want to edit and nothing happens when you dbl click. ?
I don't know it that the right way to do it or not. Same thing your talking about happens to me too sometimes. Not exactly sure what it is but it's been a while since it happened to me. I just sort of ignore it and it goes away ? 🙂
I have the arrow selected, not just the mouse cursor, and the magnet is also on. However, I do have to click 3 times before I can edit the text. I wonder if there is a preference where I set that I have to click three times. is there? I think this may be a software glitch.
