    Use a text/shape layer as a mask for another layer

      Hi!

       

      I can't figure out how I can use a text or shape layer as a mask for the layer below.

       

      See the example attached and you will know what I mean. (I created the example with simply cutting out the text outline from the white box).

       

      I need the text to be a mask and I need it to be editable as text. Don't know if this is possible, experimented with clipping masks but I cant make it work.

       

      Thanks!
