Hi Team!

All I want to do is place white text (oh, one colored word) on a black background. I can't find a tool to make that happen.

1. Open a new canvas.
2. Press CTRL + SHIFT + I on your keyboard. That will invert the colours.
3. Make a new layer.
4. Select white as you primary colour & type your text.
5. Make a new layer.
6. Select whatever other colour you want & type your word.

Putting each word on a new layer means that you can use the rectangle select to move it around without it affecting the rest of the image.

I recommend saving once as a .PDN & one as a .PNG (you will be prompted to Flatten). If you need to go back & change anything you can do it with the layers in the .PDN file.

Welcome to the forum & I hope this helps.
