Edit Text /Keeping Text Effect

Recommended Posts

How can I go back and edit text? I tried going back and editing the text I had, but the entire text disappeared. O.O

I'm using a text effect, I need to edit the text itself while still maintaining the effect.

I don't want to start over and repeat the lengthy process of making the same effect again with new text.

Once you deselect the text, it is committed to the layer as pixels. If you want to be able to edit text, you'll need to install the editable text plugin

From the plugin thread where you also asked this question:

You can't. The text must be unadorned and on it's own layer.

Simon Brown (plugin author) specifically states in the first post in this thread:

"Do not make any changes to that layer apart from layer properties and editing the text with this plugin."
