Type Layers

After you add text to your image, the text will appear on a Type layer (indicated by a T where there would usually be a preview thumbnail in the Layers palette). This layer is special because you can edit the text at any time by using the Type tool and clicking within the text. If a yellow warning triangle appears along with the T that designates a Type layer, that's an indication that the typeface you've chosen is not currently installed in your operating system (Figure 19.40). When a font is missing, you will not be able to edit the text without having Photoshop substitute a different typeface. You might also run into a gray warning triangle on a Type layer. That's an indication that the text will be reflowed if it is edited; that might change the way the paragraph breaks into multiple lines. You'll get that symbol any time you open an image that was created in a version of Photoshop prior to 6.0.
