Using the Text facility

Recommended Posts

I want to replace some of the text on an old map, as it is becoming illegible. However, I am having difficulty in angling the words. I am using layering, but when I rotate the layer the text moves away from the original typing point. Is it possible to rotate the words in situ?

I can carry out the operation using Roxio, but the results are nowhere near as good. The characters are ragged.

I am new to Paint.net, by the way, but I love it.

Certainly. Use the Rectangle Select Tool and select around the text you want to rotate. Change to the Move Selected Pixels tool (press "M") and Right-click/drag one of the corners. The selection should rotate from the center.
