Select and move text problem

Either wrong layer (doubtful) or wrong tool. Move selection and move selected pixels do different things. Move selection describes what you are seeing. Which just moves the selection box and doesn't affect the image pixel at all.

Could be from having run out of memory, but this seems to be less common of a problem as everybody buys newer machines. I've had all sorts of issues from running out of memory, but not that one.

I'm selecting the correct layer and tools. I've also since cleaned up my pc to provide more space (much more than when it was working before).

I've also opened a new file and tried to use the tool, but sill I can't move the text. I don't really want to have to, but if I need to, should I unistall and re-install the program?

Thanks

Thankyou! I had to go through every layer and use both the select pixels and move selection tools indivually, but eventually found the layer it was on! What it highlights is that the difficulty was created because the text isn't visible on any of the layers in the layer window, unless I'm doing something wrong? ANyway, thanks for the support.

perhaps get into the habit of naming your layers. sometimes just the simple little word text instead of layer 1, 2 3 etc helps when working with multiple layers. Its something you will appreciate getting into the habit of doing when you start working with more than 20 layer images.

PS I know its not what you asked but as you are at the beginning of using the program its an excellent habit to get into.
