So like usual, I made a text box to start typing but I don't know what happened because now there is the same word in various small fonts all over my work. I have no idea where it came from. If you look at the photo, there is the word "Jin" in white everywhere and I can't seem to remove it.

Have you tried turning off the visibility of the three text layers a the top of the layer stack?

 

It almost looks like a watermark, except it is in front of everything, so must be in one of the top three layers.

Try Michael's idea first. If it does not work, turn off the visibility for all the layers, then turn them on one at a time in case the text was rasterized and is now pixels on another layer.

Hi Jane, I ended up resolving the problem by pressing the undo button until it somehow disappeared. But now that I think about it, your advice would have been an easier way to fix the problem. Thank you and I'll keep that in mind if this happens again!

You're welcome, Rebeca. I'm glad it's resolved now.

I did try turning off the visibility of the three text layers, but some of the words were still there.

 

Thank you for the reply.

Definitely looks like a watermark. Is there a function that automatically overlays whatever you input as a tiled watermark (like in stock images samples and drafts)?

 

The other option is, of course, that the device is haunted 🤭
