Moving

Q1:How do I center type on an image?

A1: Command-click (PC: Control-click) to select the Background layer and your Type layer. From the Layer menu choose Align and pick the alignment you want (or choose the Move tool [V] and use the Align icons in the Options Bar). You can also use Smart Guides (View>Show>Smart Guides) to center your text. As you move your Type layer, a smart guide will appear when the type is centered.
Q2:How can I move type while I'm typing? Is it possible to reposition my type without committing it first?
A2: All you have to do is drag the cursor about an inch away from the type and your cursor will temporarily change into the Move tool.
Q3:Why can't I use the Move tool with vertical type? When I use my Type tool, I can move my mouse away from the type to temporarily get the Move tool to position the type. I can't seem to get this to work with vertical type. Am I missing something?
A3: It should work, but if it doesn't, you can also try holding down Command (PC: Control) to temporarily activate the Move tool while using the Type tool.
