Never knew about this little nugget!

Post by odog » February 3rd, 2006, 3:20 pm

This has annoyed the shit out of me for about 6 years now. What a simple solution :) .
Ever notice that when you’re working in Photoshop and you have a text layer and you’re trying to create a new text layer that it’s nearly impossible to click in the spot you want without selecting the existing text?

To get around this little headache, all you have to do is hold the Shift key down as you click with the Type tool. By doing this, Photoshop ignores the existing text layers.
Too easy :wink: .
The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.

Bloody hell. I really should read my own forum. This had passed me by and it's only been here for a year :roll:

Cheers Odog. I didn't know that either (I bet that bloody Paul did ... smart arse :wink: )
