Why am I unable to edit text in a PSD file?


I got a psd from one designer, I got the gotham font that he used but when I open the file to edit the logo and replace the current content with my own content nothing happens, another layer gets created.

If I select the original layer the fonts get selected...I noticed that there is a shape icon. How can I work with this psd?

Please see attached picture! I use photoshop cc

Accepted Answer

What you have there is a shape layer, not live text. There is no way to convert that shape layer back to live type.

You'll either need to reset the text or ask the original creator to NOT convert the type to a shape layer before sending it to you.
