Re editing text layer


Recommended Posts

I am finding it frustrating that I cannot go back and edit a text layer. There appears to be no way to re-edit text once you move off of the text area during it's creation. Am I missing something? Is there a great plugin to fix this deficit?

Thanks, Charles

I wonder why this is not a default ability to do within Paint.net and directly on the layer?

Probably because Paint.NET is a bitmap editor and not a vector editor.

Once text is rendered it is converted to a bitmap (Paint.NET's native editing format).

For a free vector editor, I would suggest trying out InkScape.

Download: BoltBait's Plugin Pack | CodeLab | and how about a Computer Dominos Game

I think supporting vector layers would nevertheless be nice -- editable text would be a huge step forward. I would also argue with that distinction between purely bitmap and purely vector editors. Photoshop supports vector layers too, though it's mainly a bitmap editor. So it must not be such a foolish thing to do. :smile:
