Editable Text v1.0 STABLE

Recommended Posts

Secure Download

If you get a warning, try the unencrypted download.

An often-requested feature now included in Popular Feature Requests is the ability to re-edit text. This plugin is an alternative text-tool that includes that feature. It works by using Steganography to store the details of the text in the text layer.

To add text to an image, create a new layer and click Effects -> Tools -> Editable Text. Then enter the text and text style. To edit the text, simply run the plugin again. Do not make any changes to that layer apart from layer properties and editing the text with this plugin.

Awesome idea!

A couple things:


  • [*:3jyt8up1]It seems like you're only using the B channel instead of all R, G, and B.
    [*:3jyt8up1]Why is the alpha set to 2 instead of 0?
    [*:3jyt8up1]I get a weird dark border with light colored text.

It seems like you're only using the B channel instead of all R, G, and B.

I guess I should look at that - I probably based the whole encoding on the index data - which would need to have a higher range.

Why is the alpha set to 2 instead of 0?

Unnecessary on second-thought - it is basically how the application determine whether a pixel was a code pixel when the pixels were placed in random positions on the vertical axis.

I get a weird dark border with light colored text.

I have no idea how to solve that - my plugin simply passes the size value to the new Font() method.

As I have said, this plugin is still in beta and I will fix those issues when I have time.

Most of your plugins start with very good and necessary ideas but very often they aren't very good executed... They are very often missing very important parts as like AA or proper undo options^^

The text doesn't visibly appear on the layer if the text style is adjusted before typing.

When the text is typed in first, then style adjustments are made all is well.

Is this as designed?

Simon: like your plug-in, makes PDN a lot more useful, BUT

why does there seem to be a limit on the number of characters allowed in the text buffer of EditableText ?

The limit seems to be about 150 characters.

Is there any way to increase this ?

BTW what is the most recent version ?

Thanks! I've recently developed an interest in captioned images. This tool looks like it could be a bit more useful than Paint.NET's native text tool, at least as far as fixing errors discovered after having moved on to something else. There is one glaring omission though. There's no 'center' or 'right' alignment option that I saw. Could this be added?

I'm glad I'm able to edit my text.

However, when I go back to edit it, the text effect I use disappears.

I'd really like to be able to edit the text while still maintaining the text effect.

How can I do so?
