I am also having the same issue and have started a post over in the AutoCAD forum ...
This problem happens with true type and shx fonts. I am using the move command. Using the grips does not seem to cause this problem. This is not mtext, just regular text and it is not annotative. I am using an ATI Radeon HD 4300/4500 card and I don't know how much memory it has but it's nowhere near yours. This problem happens with the hardware acceleration turned on or off.
I know I've said this before but I feel it's worth mentioning again. Out of all of our computers in the office, four are exactly the same in terms of hardware and OS. They are all running the exact same version of the graphics card driver as well. Only one of these computers is experiencing this problem. I tried to get this problem to occur on another computer but everything works just fine.
Another contributor has the same problem and according to the following link, someone from Autodesk is looking into it.
Thanks for all the posts. I have the exact same issues: intermittantly, I will move a text only to have it disappear. The only way to see it again is to REGEN and it appears at the original location.
To edit it, save and re-open, and everything's fine. Or as Bill suggests, I have also used AUDIT Y. Audit reports 0 errors but then the text works fine.
I am not holding my breath for a fix. I reported a major error with polylines in April 2000 that has never been fixed.

I have encountered the same problem, with objects other than text.
Please see my post:
And see if it relates to you also.
As long as we keep beating on this horse I am just wondering if there are valid reasons that using regular text is necessary. For sure it is not an easy task but changing text to mtext seems to solve the problem.
I am not arguing, just wondering, I don't know of any reasons that I need regular text. Joe probably knows, but he is too shy to respond.
I was having the same issue, the text would disappear when editing. If you highlight it, right click, then select "editor settings", then select "always display as WYSIWYG" this should take care of it. It worked for me.
I am trying to help track down what may be causing this and have some question for you--any information you can supply us will help.
I do have a few questions about your system and drawings where you are seeing the drawings disappear for everyone having these issues:
1. Are the drawings that are having the problems drawings that were originally created in Civil 3D or were the created in both Civil 3 and AutoCAD?
2. Have you checked that your graphics card and the driver for it are certified and correct and that when you do this--do you still see this problem?
3. If you do--can you tell us the computer setup, graphics card and driver combination and send us a drawing with reproducible steps that we can see this happen (if the drawing and reproducible steps are not possible--how about just the hardware information so we can see if we can start seeing a pattern?)
Thanks Everyone--I am also going to post this on the Civil thread as well!

The problem is with the in place text editor for single line text in 2012. Change the system variable DTEXTED to 1 and the issue goes away, but you are then using the old text editor wth a dialog box. I kind of like it better anyway.
