Newbie Editing a PSD Layer

Recommended Posts

A real simple question from a newbie perpetually frustrated with the simplest of tasks in all paint programs.

I'm editing a PSD with a plugin. There is a layer with a piece of text on it. I want to edit this selection. I don't want to make new text. I want to select this text and change it, retaining the exact positioning, font, etc.

How do I do this? The tutorials and help do not tell me.

As of now, Paint.NET doesn't support re-editable text (even with its own text tool). Once you finalize text, you can't go back and change things. If you want to change the text from the PSD file, you have to find the font that was used and re-write it.
