I can't use text

Recommended Posts

I am trying to make a postcard for Christmas invitations.

I guess I am just not getting your program.

Can't I put the text in then go back and change the format of it?

It seems I can't highlight the text to select it or move it around.

I am very frustrated, sorry if I am not making sense.

thank you,

Paint.net is a raster program. It rasterizes the text as soon as you change tools or go to another layer(which means you cannot change it). I suggest if you want to change your text make sure you put it on a different layer from the background image. You can always delete the text layer, but if you save the image with the text on the background you cannot remove the text that easily. Also always save a copy of your files as .pdn
