    Transparent editable text effect

    mariap14286444 Level 1

      I often drag a PSD file into a different PSD file, where an effect will be placed over it. But if I have white text, which needs to remain editable, then the effect layer will count it the same as the black layer, and make it invisible. Is it possible to be able to have editable text that shows the background like the second image below? What I have done there is magic wand the text and delete it from the black banner. But is there a way of having it so I can just type and see the checkered background behind it, without having deleted anything?


      I think this is a long shot, but it'd save me a lot of time if it was possible.

      Many thanks in advance!
