I just downloaded a trial version of Premier Elements to see if I'd be able to do what I want before I purchase it. And, I figured out how to get an arrow using wingding font, but for the life of me, I cannot figure out how to change the color. I click on the color palette icon and select a different color, but it won't apply it to the text. Either I'm doing something wrong or the software has an issue.
If you are using a Wingding, you're using a font, which mean that it is text.
Are you in the Title Adjustments workspace? Did you use the text selection tool to select the arrow?
If you use a regular font and you type text into your title, can you select it and change its color? The process is exactly the same.
Thanks for responding. Yes, I'm using the title adjustments. When I click on the color properties for the text, I see a box with color in it and to the right of that a red diagonal line, a white box and a black box. There is also Fill, a drop-down I can't select and Stroke Weight. I can slide the color selection over to a red hue and click OK, but it doesn't change the color of the text.
It is not intuitive. Click the white box between the red line and black box. Then below that there is a slider that put the general color in the box above it. In side the upper box is a little round circle that you move toward the color and density you want. Then press OK. Be sure the wingding or text is highlighted or selected before you start.
Thx, got it now. And, you're right, it's not very intuitive.
You should pick up a copy of my book! It would feel real intuitive real fast!
In any event, please mark this question as correctly answered.
Where can I get a copy of your book?
