why can I not add text?

Recommended Posts

Hi pretty new to this.

I have used paint for years and know my way around quite well. I have now installed Paint.net.

I have been trying to use the type tool but no text is appearing when I type, and yes I have made sure the colour selected for the type is different from the background.

Any ideas?????

thanks in advance

The most likely cause is either you were trying to put text outside of a current selection or you were trying to put text on a layer that was covered by something on a higher layer.

In the former case, be sure to press Esc before using the text tool.
