Text Tool

Post#1 by Pat625 » 25 May 2017, 15:29


Having difficulty with text tool in that I am unable to end or get out of the first text box and make another one. It keeps jumping back to the first one. What must I do to easily make more than one text box?

What i do is i make the first text box in one area, and the second text box in another area separate from the first one so that you don't click on area of first text box. and i i want them to move them closer to each other i move them afterward after both text are created. So don't make text box area so large if you have little text to add just make them large enough to show text.

When you have finished with the first box, click somewhere(*) on the image outside the first box and the second is started
(unless you have some problem in your environment)

(*) where you want the second one

I must have had a "glitch". What you are describing is the way I was doing it, but could not get it to work. Today, no problem!

Pat, I have that problem from time to time. When it happens, I close the eye to the layer where the text is and I select the background layer and start the new text. Most of times it works for me. :D
