Pattern layer - how to paste something into that

Recommended Posts

Hey, has anyone figured out how to paste something existing in there? I only managed to create a pattern from scratch but I'd like to use assets that I already have but I can't. I can't even type text into it because it's on a different layer. Can't use the pen tool becauseĀ  it's on a different layer. Nothing, just the brush.

Sure, I can make a pattern layer from a selection but that's about it. Did anyone find some smart ways to work with that? I'm having a huge fight getting a text in an existing brush with a box around it.

Clipping doesn't do anything

Hello Xzenor,

you can only use bitmaps/raster on the pattern-layer, as documented in the help. Text, Shapes and the pen-tool are vector-graphics.

Position the new element above the master tile of the Pattern Layer and then do Merge Down.

Wow! That works? Great tip! Thanks!

Edit: Yes! That works!!
