Photoshop :: Text Layers Changing Into Other Text Layers

Nov 18, 2013

I often will borrow groups and layers from one document and drag them into a new or a different PS document to borrow the layers and formatting so I am not starting over from scratch with a design that I just need to re-work into a different size.

But in the last two weeks, when I drag the layers over, they start mysteriously changing into other layers that I did not drag over. What is causing this bug? It wasn't there before as I have performed this action many times in various projects. I am using PS CS6 on a Mac Book Pro.

Photoshop :: Clipping Mask Multiple Text Layers Without Merging Text Layers

Dec 29, 2008

I am trying to get a white layer with see through writing which reveals the background image underneath. (Almost like I have put a stencil over a photograph). I have discovered this is called a clipping mask.

However, I am having difficulty using a clipping mask over multiple text layers. It seems to only do it to one layer directly beneath. I do not want to merge the text layers as I want to mess about with the design a fair bit.

Photoshop :: Increase Font Size In Many Text Layers At A Time By Selecting In Layers Panel

May 9, 2013

I would like to increase the font size in many text layers at a time by selecting them in the layers panel. The font increases, but the text boxes don't expand to fit the increased size text. So I am having to make each box bigger manually. Is there a way to have the boxes expand to fit bigger text automatically through the layers panel?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Macro To Create Layers And Place Text In The Layers?

Aug 12, 2013

We use AutoCad to name our dxf files for our Burn Table and whenever we get a new part it is a repetitive task to input layers and common text.  So what I am curious is can AutoCAD input the layers and text automatically using a Macro?

I want the Macro to put in 6 layers and choose the layer color and title then input text boxes with word in 3 different layers.  There will be about a total of 10 different text boxes with text already put in the boxes by the Macro.

GIMP :: Layers Turn Into Text Layers?

my gimp 2.8.6 makes majority normal layers turn into text layers..

Even if i "discard text information" from layer..and then save it as .xcf it doesnt work! Same layers appear as text layers when i open that .xcf Its not a big deal but it really slows me down when im working with layers..

GIMP :: Change Text Size In All Text Layers?

Oct 4, 2011

I am creating a layered marine chart with reference points. I've imported the chart and am creating text layers with a reference number in them.

I have about 700 of these to add - a daunting task - but it's for a NZ coastguard unit, so is worthwhile.

The idea is to have a layer with all our reference points on it, so when a chart is updated, we can just import the chart; add back the reference points layers and print it out.

(Why? NZ baynames, danger spots etc usually have 2 names; an english name and a maori name - sometimes we have to cross reference when on the water to find the correct place).

Is creating text layers the best way of doing this?

Is there any way of increasing the size of all the text - instead of having to edit 700 text layers?

Photoshop :: PS 7: Moving Text In Layers

May 22, 2009

I've been using PS7 for a long time and this has never happened before. One minute things were fine and then something changed. Maybe I hit a combination of keys .... well here's the issue.I type text onto a blank layer. I try to move the text. In the pallette, the cursor drops off the text layer, and onto the background, instead. In order to move the text, I wind up clicking on it numerous times, or if I click on it very slowly, I can grab it to move it. This is not how it was working just yesterday.I'm sure this sounds confusing, I'm just not sure how to describe it any better. (It's not my mouse, I tried a different one.)I tried Adobe's help site and saw this:"Clicking in an image with a type tool puts the type tool in edit mode. You can enter and edit characters when the tool is in edit mode; however, you must commit changes to the type layer before you can perform some operations. To determine if a type tool is in edit mode, look in the options bar--if you see the Commit button (a check)  and Cancel button (circle with slash), the type tool is in edit mode."

Photoshop :: All Text Layers To Shapes?

Sep 26, 2004

I'm sending a PS document to a printer and to avoid the problem of the printer possibly not having a specific font I'd like to turn all my text layers into shape layers.

Is there a way to turn all text layers in a single document into shape layers easily? I know I can do it individually layer by layer but that just seems too tedious.

I do not want to rastorize the text, just turn it into vector shapes.

Photoshop :: Text Layers Not Saved Correctly As PDF

May 6, 2013

I frequently save layouts I do in Photoshop as PDF's. Lately I very often will discover the text does not display correctly in the PDF. One or two lines of text will display as white with a thin black outline, rather than as the basic solid black I'd specified.
 
I work on a Windows 7 machine with the current version of PS. The text is on layers when I save the file to PDF (from PS), but I do not include the layers in the PDF, so they should be flattening down.
 
I noticed a few weeks ago when it was also doing this that I updated the program a day later and the PDF's were not exhibiting this issue. But, now it's starting again.

Photoshop :: Sticky Slices - Layers And Text With CS5

Jun 6, 2013

I run PS CS5 with Windows 7 on a Bootcamp Macbook.
 
About 40% of the time when I want to nudge slices, layers or text fields nothing will happen until I hit space (hand tool) and shift the canvas. It's as if moving it wakes Photoshop up and it re-renders the screen with the newly positioned element.
 
This gets quite tedious and like I say, strangely doesn't happen all the time. Sometimes I can shut the program down and it will go away when reopened and sometimes not. Other times, this bug won't happen for a day or two then rear its head again for no apparent reason.

Photoshop :: CS6 - Editing File With Many Text Layers

Aug 29, 2012

I've got a serious issue since the begining of my Photoshop CS6 installation.It's not happening to all my files but few are enough !
 
I explain myself : When I open a file with many text layers and when I try to edit one of them the text is instantly remplaced by another random text present in this same file.Then the file seems to be corrupted because when I open it with CS5 it does the same thing.
 
I can't re-edit those files and I must rewrite all those text layers, this is not possible to handle that in a professional way.I tried to launch the script for texts crashes but nothing works.

Photoshop :: Layers..... Animated Glittering Text

Dec 18, 2005

how to make glittering animated text (or images)
and *I know this sounds dumb* but I accidentally got out of the layers toolbar i guess it was, and i can't get it back. Or rather i don't know how.
You know... how there's toolbars for color and stuff on the right, i got out of the layers toolbar and need it back. It's a little confusing to make the animated text with layers etc.

Basically i was adding *noise* in one layer and adding noise in another layer but with a different number. I was supposed to click on the image ready button and have it be animated but it wasn't working.

i'd really like my layers toolbar back.

Photoshop :: Updating Text Layers Changes Font

Jul 27, 2009

I am using CS2 on a XP64 machine. I am editing a .psd originally created in Photoshop 7 but saved under a different file name in CS2.When I open the file, a dialog box with this text appears: "Some text layers need to be updated before they can be used for vector output. Do you want to update these layers now?" The options are No and Update.Updating the layers changes all the text layers from font "Times New Roman" to "Radioactive", which I'm sure isn't a standard installed font. To avoid the problem in future edits, I saved the .psd under a different name through CS2 and then deleted all the offending text layers and recreated them using "Times New Roman" again. However, after saving the file and reopening it, I get the same problem as before. Should I perhaps delete the "Radioactive" font? I'd really rather not have to enter all the text in again.

Now , is it possible to add something in my application (C++) so it could directly change the data in my text layers ? Is there any "library" ?

Photoshop :: Text Alignment Separate Layers Individually

Jan 10, 2013

I'm attempting to migrate from Fireworks to PS so I can access and learn more features and tools. One of the reasons I like FW is that simple things like aligning objects and layers, for example, to the center, top or bottom of the page is easy.  I can't seem to achieve this very simple task in my version of PS CS5. For instance, to center a  layer, I'm supposed to select another layer to reference it to?  However, when I do this, the align function realigns the other layer I'm using as a reference too. I keep reading that the align tool can't affect a single layer.  If this is the case, why have an  alignment tool at all?  It's a very confusing feature!
 
My question is this: can  photoshop align seperate layers individually? Or should I continue to do that work, layout and design, in Fireworks and then save and import as a .psd file to finish my work in PS? (I know that PS is a great photo editing tool but I'm not sure if it is optimized for graphic design work like Fireworks is.)

Photoshop :: Why Can't Text Layers Be Locked And Made Selectable

Nov 29, 2012

I can't believe this is still an issue in CS6. When you have multiple text layers stacked near or in between each other, its impossible to lock the layer so that it can no longer be selected. Even if the layer is locked, the TYPE tool is still able to select it. This makes its a super pain in the tail to edit text near each other. Is there a way to make the text layers lock and NOT be selectable?
 
Instead of locking a layer and not being able to select it with the type tool, a pop-up telling us that its locked come up?

Photoshop :: CC Messes Up Text Colors / Layer Effects And Whole Layers

Jul 9, 2013

I was just working on several documents when something strange happened - out of nothing the appearance of fonts,layers, backgrounds etc changed. white color turned black. some layers had total different colors ( bitmap layers, no shape layers) - everything looked really messed up. I thought its some display bug in Photoshop cc so I saved my document and restart everything - fun thing -> it did save with these alterations.
 
Whatever happened, I have the problem in 2 documents, i can't reproduce it - one was a pretty big psd file - the other one was a fairly new one. Because of Time machine i was able to recover my file.
 
Retina Macbook Pro 15, OSX 10.8.4 and newest photoshop CC via teamcloud.
