CS5.1 Menu - editing individual char attributes

Jul 31, 2012 11:24 AM

Tags: #cs5.5 #menu #character #encore #attribute

I just realized that I cannot edit attributes of individual characters in menu text box.

If I highlight a portion of text in a box, then as soon as I click on Character panel the highlight disappears and entire box is selected (handles appear).

I can accomplish the task with "edit Menu in Photoshop", but I used to be able to do this within Encore CS3.

As a test, I installed Encore CS5.1 on 32bit XP partition containing CS3, and it behaved the same way (unable to edit attributes of individual chars).

I have not been able to find any info on this on the net.  Am I missing something?

Thank you for any insight on this.

 

Production Premium CS5.5

on Win7 SP1 64bit

    Did you use the Direct Selection Tool (A) to select the text box?

    Its next to the Selection Tool (V).

    I select the text box with the Direct Selection Tool, double click (which actually gives the Texttool) this will give you the all the text.

    Click again and it deselects. Now select the letter/word(s) you want to edit.

    Now i see what you mean.

    I tried it in CS5.5 and CS6 and yes a soon as you want to change one character to say bold the whole text box jumps to bold.

    I think in this Photoshop is the easiest way to solve this.

    Or set the character or word in a seperate text box.

    I never noticed it before as i do my text editing also in PS.

    I find if you mess too much in Encore (previous versions) the project goes haywire/corrupt.

    This happens even if I hold my breath tight.

    Now you can breath easy, even if you have to edit in Photoshop!
