Is there any way when opening a psd file to be able to have text layers editable rather than as pixel data. I receive psd files from designers that I turn into websites and I need to be able to select the text and find out the font name, style, weight etc...

Hi Designer-Clint,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
Just to confirm: are you trying to import a PSD file with editable text layers into Photo / Designer with the Import PSD text as text rather than bitmap option ticked in the Preferences, General tab and they are coming as raster layers? And this also happens when you copy text layers between Photo and Designer? What OS are you running?

Hi createsean,

If you open Preferences > General you have an option for importing PSD text as text and not bitmap.

Thanks so so much!!!! This helped!
