AD Text issues

Recommended Posts

I usually don't use too much text with my projects but in this project that is different and I have run into two issues that I haven't seen discussed before.  Am I the only one seeing these?

 

1.  I am using the Artistic text tool and when typing if I try to insert a comma the screen goes into a split view of Vector and Pixels.  I can not get a comma into my text.

 

2.  Also in Artistic text when in the middle of a text entry I used the eyedropper to check a color.  After that I am able to continue entering and editing text, but AD ignores it when I press Esc.  I can press it several times with no affect.  The only way to end the text is using the mouse to click on another layer, another area of the screen or another tool.

 

I did a ctrl reset all yesterday.  Beta 1.3.5.5

MEB, normally it does but following the use of the eyedropper it is ignored.

 

Try this, make sure the color panel is selected:

1.  Go to the Artistic text tool and click in the canvas.

2. Type "This is"

3. Drag out the eyedropper to somewhere on the canvas and release it.

4. Type "a test"

5. Press Esc.

 

Regardless of how many times I repeat step 5 I stay in text edit mode.  Each time I hit Esc if I have the sound high enough to hear it I get a beep.

MEB the only program I had open was Path Finder.  I closed PF, opened AD and repeated the test.  Same results.

Another vote to fix the comma bug when you're typing in text.  It is super annoying!  At least as a workaround, you can copy a comma to your clipboard and paste it in.
