Editing Text

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just started using Paint.NET, and after I have created some text, when I want to edit them later (e.g. change colour, font, size etc), I couldn't find a way to? I know this is a simple question, so could someone please help me? Thanks.

CommanderSozo's right, but you can edit the color and size and not the font. You can set the tolerance level for the magic wand to 68%-70% to select all your font and then use the selection tool. After, you can change your color by going to Color Tint or Adjustments.

...and because the text is "fixed" once you have deselected the text tool or shifted the focus to another layer, it's a very good idea to get in the habit of always placing your text on its own layer. Now if you need to edit the text, it's a relatively painless process to delete the old layer and create a new one.

If you have loads of text, keep a copy on a Word/Notepad document so you can simply cut-n-paste it into your image (when the texttool :TextTool: is active).
