Lesson 14. Arranging Layer Objects in Im... > Duplicating and editing text objects

Duplicating and editing text objects

In ImageReady, text can be selected and manipulated like any other layer object. This includes the power to align text objects precisely and easily with Smart Guides.

1.
In the tool options bar for the Move tool, select the Layer Select tool ().

2.
Select the Hearty Soups layer object in the image window.

3.
Press Alt (Windows) or Option (Mac OS) and drag down to create and move a copy of the Hearty Soups layer. (At this stage, exact position isn’t important.)

4.
Use the same technique from Steps 2 and 3 to create two more copies of the Hearty Soups layer.

5.
Select the Type tool () in the toolbox, and drag or double-click and drag to select the words Hearty Soups in the first copy you made of this layer.

6.
Type International Entrees.

7.
Using the same process, rename the remaining two copies of the Hearty Soups layer, but type Fresh Seafood in one copy and Chocolate in the other.
