Text - help plz

Recommended Posts


1. Make sure you have the Text tool selected and you've selected a location on the picture to type.

2. Make sure your primary color isn't the same as the background.

Also, it's a good idea to type text on a new layer so that it's easier to edit later, but that's not necessary.

Let me know if this helps!


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Make sure you don't have an active selection ( :EllipseSelectTool: :SelectAll: etc.) when trying to use the text tool.

If you try to type outside of your current selection it won't let you--nothing shows up.

Just press ESC or click :Deselect: before clicking :TextTool:

It may also be because the font your trying to use isn't compatitble with PDN, actually, that gives me an interesting question, why does it only allow certain file types? It's more for curosity than wanting it fixes, though.

Paint.NET uses the GDI+ graphics system which supports TrueType Fonts only.
