Chapter 6. Using Paint Tools > Creating Bitmapped Text

Creating Bitmapped Text

The Text tool (Figure 6.69) allows you to create bitmapped text within the Paint window. Unlike regular text (which you’ll learn about in Chapter 12, “Adding Text”), bitmapped text isn’t editable. If you want to correct a misspelling, use a different font, or make any other changes, your only option is to erase what’s there and start over. (That’s why it’s often a good idea to choose the size, style, and typeface of your text before you start typing.) Also, most text created in the Paint window also has a bad case of the “jaggies.”
