I can't edit text :(

13 posts in this topic

Hi :)

I wrote text in Paint.Net

And now I need to do some changes in what I wrote, in the size, and colour.

But when I choose the text tool (the A icon on the tool box) and try to select what I wrote, it just won't select it, so I can't edit anything.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

That's how the text tool works. Once you switch away from the text it is converted into a bitmap for regular bitmap editing.

I recommend placing text on its own layer, that way you can easily delete it and start over.

Text isn't editable in Paint.NET, but you could resize it and recolour it using several different other tools.

Thanks Andrew for the quick reply :)

What are these tools? Can you recommend some?

Thanks again.

i think he means plugins like tube oblique to bend the text...

@cat: if you write your text in its own layer you can edit it later, just delete the layer and make a new one ;)

Nope, that sounds like floating window tools to me ( :MoveTool::RecoloringTool: )

Hi :)

Actually I need both.

Sometimes I need to change the spelling of what I wrote, and sometimes I need to change the font size and colour ....etc

I'm too lazy to recreate another layer and write all over again. :lol:

Is there a plug-in to do these tasks?

Thanks.

That makes sense. I guess I just expected it to be editable because I opened a Photoshop file where the text layer was editable. It's cool that it can still import an editable photoshop text layer even though you can't edit it within Paint.net.
