Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

Thread: How Do I Copy Text From Word To Photoshop?

    How Do I Copy Text From Word To Photoshop?

    I have a letter typed up in Microsoft Word and would like to copy it into a Photoshop document. But when I copy and paste the text it doesn't appear on the new document, but the first few words do show up in that layer's title (over on the side), just not on the actual document.

    What do I have to do in order to paste the text successfully?

    Thank you!!!

    Create a textbox by dragging the Text tool, then paste once you have the cursor in there…

    You should write up a tutorial on that.

    Actually, if you paste it without the textfield it'll work as well... just be aware of your font color
    got pwnt?

    I've had trouble with that before… maybe it's different between CS and CS2?

    Thanks nokrev, didn't realize I had to drag the textfield.

    hl, I did try it without the textfield but it wouldn't work and I did double-check the color.

    blazes, sorry I offended you with my stupid question.

    You don't have to use a textbox, but you do have to have the cursor flashing in PS when you paste the text.
