How to change multiple layers with text at once?

Post by peter21 »

Hi there,

I'm new to PaintShop Pro.

Lets say I have multiple layers of text with different fonts, sizes and colors.

Can someone tell me please how to change the attributes like the font size of multiple layers at once?

What I tried to do:
- Select all layers with CTRL -> Text-tool -> new font size [ENTER]
- make a group of the text-layers -> Text-tool -> new font size [ENTER]

Nothing is working. Only one layer gets changed.

If it helps: Here is a video (with Photoshop) demonstrating what I would like to do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEg9CaIyQcg

Thanks in advance.

I do not believe there is any built in method for doing this. PSP enters into a specific editing mode when you edit text and it can only do that one text object at a time.

I've attached a zip folder. Unzip the PSPScript file int your Scripts-Restricted folder.

How to use it:
1) With the text tool, determine what font, colors, styles, etc. you want to use.
2) Ctrl + Click on all Text Objects you want to update with the new settings.
3) On your Script Toolbar (View -> Toolbars -> Script if you don't already have it open) select the TextUpdate script you added to your Scripts-Restricted folder
4) Hit the Play button.

If you don't know where your Scripts-Restricted folder is you can find it by going to File -> Preferences -> Folder Locations. In the dialog that pops-up select "Scripts-Restricted" and you should see a path similar to this "C:\users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\Corel PaintShop Pro\YOUR VERSION\Scripts-Restricted" just go to that location.
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.
