Can't edit a text layer-imported from photoshop

Recommended Posts

You need to rasterize the text layer in photoshop before you import to paint.net because paint.net does not support text layers at this time.

No, Paint.NET is not spyware...but, installing it is an IQ test. ~BoltBait

Paint.NET deals with text by converting them to groups of pixels (rasterization). This happens once the text is committed to the layer it is typed on. So once text is committed to the layer, it ceases to be editable with the Paint.NET text tool.

Where does this leave your PS text layer? Probably with a collection of pixels on the layer. I haven't got PS so am unsure if you need to convert the layer (as pdnnoob said), or if it will be automatically converted to a bitmap by the plugin. I suspect the latter will occur.

With the character(s) converted to bitmaps the only way to edit them is to delete the pixels and retype the text.
