Resizing Text
How do you re-size (or change the font of) existing text? I've tried several ways of selecting the text, and going back into editing mode, but nothing seems to work.

Thanks, I suspected as much.

That's the problem. If you do almost anything to the layer, the Text layer gets converted to a regular layer and then you can't do anything to the text but start over. I guess the message here is PLAN AHEAD!

RE: Resizing Text
Well, that works, but instead of getting a solid text like I had before, I now get an outline of the text. Then I have to select and bucket fill each character. Is there an easier way?
