    How to switch from one type layer to another?

    H.Eakland

      Is it possible, without having to use my mouse to manually select a different tool, to move from editing type on one layer to type on a different layer?

       

      Here's my frustration: when I'm editing type on one layer, I would love to be able to use a keyboard command to "refresh" the Type tool and then be able to click on another text layer and start editing there.

       

      But of course, whatever key I use to try and do that -- for example, typing M to select the Move tool -- simply types an "m" into the selected text layer.

       

      If memory serves me well (and it might not), I thought there was a keyboard command to do this in a long ago and far away version of Photoshop. Something that might have been lost in subsequent releases.

       

      The only way I know how to do this now is: (1) edit text in first layer, then (2) use my mouse to select a different tool from the Tool palette, then (3) reselect the Text tool (or use the T keyboard command for that, and then (4) select the second text layer that I want to edit.

       

      Simply one too many clicks for my liking.
