Newbie Question About Changing Fonts


Recommended Posts

I have what I hope is a simple question.

I am using the text tool and would like to change the font and then back again.

Specifically, I would type 3 characters in Arial, then 1 in Wingding-2 and then back to Arial again.

I can not seem to accomplish this as when I change to Wingding-2, the font of the characters that I typed previously in Arial are also changed to Wingding-2.

Thank you in advance.

allanc,

A good way is to type the Arial on its own transparent layer,

then add a new (transparent) layer, switch fonts, click to restart the text tool,

type Wingdings, and so on.

Adding a new layer will finalize the text and let you change fonts without

affecting what is already typed.

Having each section of type on its own layer will let you reposition

things later, should you need to.

Thank you for the suggestion.

I am so new that I do not know how to create layers.

Are basic tutorials available?
