Cut and pasted text from a pdf to Encore menu page. The text is a bit hard to read, so I want to change the font, etc. However, I am not able to edit the text in Encore or Photoshop. I tried to recreate a new page and copied the same text, but this is how it pasted. I am not able to word wrap it or get it to appear as the original. What am I doing wrong? I have not rasterized anything. Not sure if it's point text or paragraph at this point.
It seems to be a text layer, but I would concur with Mr. Hunt on some level - pasting from a PDF is less than ideal. There may be some odd formatting preventing to edit the text or some non-text stuff inbetween that gets in the way.. I recomemnd you export the text to a Word or TXT fiel from Acrobat, clean it up and use that to paste the text.
So, in Encore, I created a new menu page with a colored background. I copied text from a text file, but thought it better to "Edit Menu In Photoshop" and paste it there, which is where I am now. I drew a text box on the page. The text pasted fine, and I am able to resize the box. What I need to know is how to create two columns within the text box.
Also, the text is a bit blurry and hard to read. Using a 10 pt Nueva Std font. Wondering if it is normal for text to have such poor resolution on a DVD menu. No effects or shadow applied.
I tried something else. I opened the original pdf in Photoshop and dragged the text from it onto my menu page. It kept its format in 2 columns, but was monstrous size compared to my page. I sized it down to fit. But now that it is here, it is no longer editable. I am stumped.
