Chapter 9. Working with Type > Creating and Editing Text

Creating and Editing Text

When you use the type tools, your text is automatically placed on a new, unique layer. Since the text exists on its own layer, you can do all the things to your text that layers allow, including moving, applying blending modes, and changing the opacity. Also, having text on its own layer allows you to go back and edit the text whenever you want, with a minimum of fuss.

Editing text is very simple—pretty much the same as in any word processor. One difference is the way you make a final confirmation of the changes you have entered. This is done with the Commit any current edits icon and with its partner, the Cancel any current edits icon, which together allow you to change your mind as often as you want.
