Not dead yet; just moving through some IRL bull.
Jump into IRC to bother us about how much you hate IRC!
Rasterizing text and erasing it is a pretty silly method to use.
Do it like this instead:
– clean the bubble
– input, center the text
– select the area which will be covering the text with Magnetic Lasso(good for bubbles)
– Layer via Copy
– in the layer menu, drag the newly created layer just above the text layer
Silly, but quicker overall if you’re not changing the translation or lining anymore.
I believe I’ve also seen people use layer masks.
Always good to have alternatives, though – thanks for the comment!
instead of rasterizing and erasing, or copying layers or doing all sorts of silly unnecessary things, just apply a layer mask to the type, click on the layer mask, paint over the overlapping bubble with a black brush where it should be masked, and then press the little chain link between the layer and the layer mask thumbnails in your layers panel. the type layer is now unlinked from the mask and can be repositioned without moving the mask with it.
Layer mask is easy, and preferable if you see yourself changing text, but I (AB) prefer just rasterizing and erasing in the interest of time (E -> click -> ENTER -> erase -> done). Quicker for me personally, but honestly, as long as the text is erased/masked and looks great, the method doesn’t matter.
