Elements is able to handle the copying/pasting of text onto a file.
1. Activate the Type tool. 2. Click on the file and drag your cursor to create a Text box. 3. Copy/paste your text within the box.
However, this technique has some limitations. Another program’s font won’t copy into Elements; it will paste itself as the last font you used for the Type tool. I did some testing. I wrote some text in Word using the Tahoma font (10 pt). When I copied/pasted the text onto my file in Elements, it pasted as Impact (30 pt), the font I had last used. Fortunately, these limitations can be addressed with either one of the following workarounds.
Before you bring your text into Elements, make sure the Type tool is set to the same font style, size, and color you used when you typed the text in your word-processing program.
After you bring your text into Elements, make the necessary editing adjustments concerning the font style, size, and color in the Options area of the Type tool.
Another thing - if not all your text appears in your text box, it's because the box is too small. Drag on the bottom arrow to increase the size of the text box and the rest of the text will magically appear.
