Cannot Apply Edited Text

Postby shangbin » Sat Jan 12, 2019 5:14 pm

Hi folks,

I am facing an issue with editing a text that has already been created in Paintshop Pro 2019. While I can select the text and edit font size or font colour etc, the "apply" button remains grayed and there is no way for me to effect the changes to an existing text. What do I do? Might there be a shortcut key that I can use if the apply button refuses to become valid? I have been re-creating my text when faced with this issue. I don't know if this is a bug in PSP 2019. Would appreciate any assistance. Thanks.

Can you do two cropped screenshots. One of the area where the Apply is greyed out and the other showing your image (untick Windows > Tabbed cocuments) scaled down and placed near your Layers palette .
I show an example here:

01text setting.jpg


You can do this by clicking Print Screen (or whatever works in doing a screenshot of your open PSP program with the problem showing.

Then right click in the workspace and choose Paste as New Image. Use the crop tool to outline each area and click the Crop as New Image each time to maintain the original fulll screen image but allow you to crop sections out of that image.

I think you may have had to make a 2nd or 3rd posting before you can upload an attachment while posting. But try it anyway.

Hi hartpaul,

Thanks for responding. So in the screen capture, you can see that the left Chinese character (selected in grey) font size is changed from 48 to 20, but yet the "apply changes" tick button remains unavailable to me. So when I exit the text edit tool, the character reverts back to size 48.
