    Text as the selection?

    tprout
      Hello,

      I am a new user to Fireworks, and have a question. Is there any easy method to make text the selection I want to work with?
      I wish the text tool had a text as selection option, but alas. . .

      Thank you in advance

          Type your text. Choose Text > Convert to paths, and then Modify >

          to Marquee. You could also convert the text to a bitmap (Modify >
          Flatten selection) and select it with the Magic wand tool.
