What do you mean by delete all the text? in order to delete the text from a text layer you have to rasterize the layer first and then you can just use the type tool to add text

Double click the text layer icon. (The 'T'), in the layers panel...

text_edit_MT_001.png

...then Just start typing.

Normally, this would select all the text on that layer but since there isn't any you'll just see the flashing cursor....ready for you to start typing.

Double click the layer, of course.

It's the simple things like that where I expect there to be a menu item or button somewhere.

Well no, double click the icon. :thumbsup:

That may sound pedantic but double clicking the layer does something else entirely.....as does double clicking the layer name on that layer.

Its these 'minor' details that catch people out.....blame Adobe.

...This bit confused me "Delete all the text" lol...
Yeah I know what ya mean....I had to think twice.

With a blank, but still editable, text layer, I'd normally just delete the whole layer and start again.....there's no difference....but double clicking the text layer icon is the way I always go into text 'edit' mode so it was the first thing that came to mind.

Regards.
