I don't have any trouble making text as large as I might want. However,
if I make it too large to fit in the image frame, it gets truncated.
When you use the text tool, it produces a small window in which you
enter the text, and it is then that you vary the font and size. Also,
if I want to modify the size later, all I have to do is make sure I
choose the layer containing the text. Look at the layers window. If
you are making multiple attempts to create text, you may end up making
more than one text layer, and in that case, you should make sure you've
selected the one you want to change.
