I can't edit a type layer. When click the type tool in the layer (either in the picture or the layer palette), a new layer is created.
I've had 30 years using Photoshop with ease, so perhaps I'm expecting this to work similarly.
Any tip would be appreciated. Thank you.
I've had exactly the same problem and found the only way is to persevere,
I kept undoing the Type layers and trying again and eventually a cursor appeared and I could enter my text.
It's quite frustrating but in my case worked eventually.
I hope that helps.
The type layer does not lend itselt to editing text once the green checkmark has been clicked. However, the text can be moved as a block utilizing the move tool.
The adaptive response to reality is to delete the layer with text and replace it with the correct syntax.
On the Type tool's option bar, do you see a "color picker" square box to set the color for the text?
Thanks for the reply. I discovered that the opacity was set low, so the full colour of the type wasn't appearing. Now solved.
