Can I enter Chinese character?

Vlasta (2013-03-22 15:26:31):

If the selected fonts supports Chinese characters, you should be able to use them.

albert (2013-03-22 16:00:04):

I found some problems with the Chinese fonts / characters...
- if the font name is in Chinese character, I need to manually add "@" in front of the font (in the script window), otherwise, the character won't show.
- even though I can see the Chinese character, it is not the right font. I think the application substitutes the font with another Chinese font which its font name is in English. And the text is in vertical.

Vlasta (2013-03-22 16:12:57):

It is likely that you would have to use the @ fonts as the normal ones usually do not have all unicode characters, although that would depend on the actual fonts installed on your computer. I'll add a note to the page.

I will try to do some tests regarding the second problem, but it is not going to be easy to reproduce the same situation.

Does it work correctly if you use a @ font with only English characters in the font name?

Unknown author (2013-03-22 21:11:11):

The result is the same for the @ font (English text display correctly but the Chinese rotated -90 degree.

Could you send me a screenshot to info@rw-designer.com ?

Any way to edit that hasn't had the Apply button clicked? I did something, then grabbed the text tool again, and can see the text in the editor box but can't change the text color, size, or add or subtract text. It would sure be nice if the text were editable.

Nice program, by the way.

A way to edit "text" that ^ was supposed to say. See, I need to edit my typos. :P

Vlasta (2013-03-25 08:07:11):

You can edit a text object if you place it in a vector layer.

Also, you can edit comments if you post them while logged in.

Unknown author (2013-03-26 08:17:25):

I must be doing something wrong then. I tried placing text on a vector layer. Once I click a different layer and then go back to the vector layer, I can't edit the text. I can see it in the text box on the Editing menu on the right, and I can type into that text box, but the changes don't show up on the actual image. I can't change font size, color, or do anything else in the Editing pane.

Any ideas?

Vlasta (2013-03-26 08:39:11):

When you go back to the vector layer, you should click on the actual text to select it - there may be multiple text objects or other shapes in a single vector layer.

Unknown author (2013-03-26 19:37:49):

Ah, I see. I tried clicking the text too inside the box where the text had been but it only let me start new text. I hadn't clicked exactly on the text apparently, but I tried that it does work. So then, we can't apply any text effects (drop shadow for example) until the layer is rasterized, correct? I guess the best thing to do then, is to make rasterizing the text and adding effects should always be the last step before saving so we can edit it up to the end. Thanks for your help - and for a nifty program! I use Photoshop, but I've been looking for a program I can recommend to others who can't afford Photoshop and is easy to use. Yours looks like the winner!

Vlasta (2013-03-26 19:49:02):

Glad it worked. And don't give up on RWPaint that easily :-). You can apply effects to a vector layer without rasterizing it in the form of layer styles (info about how to make them in RWPaint is at the end of that page) - virtually any effect available in the application can be used in a layer style.

Unknown author (2013-03-26 23:15:27):

Ah yes, right you are! Just takes a little getting used to is all. :-)

I'm about to shoot a video tutorial. In case you're wondering why I am getting ready to make tutorials for a product I don't know very well, it's because I'm including the videos in a graphics package and I want to show users how to make simple changes to the images, such as resizing them, cropping them, and ta-da, adding text to "template" images (blank buttons, etc.). I chose RW Paint over Gimp, Paint.net, and others because the learning curve isn't as steep, but yet you can create some fairly sophisticated effects with relative ease.

Are there any resources to download pre-made layer styles RW Paint?

Vlasta (2013-03-26 23:21:50):

There are only a few basic layer styles to get people started. You can download them within the application on the Online page in the Media tab. Then, when you use the Open style... command, you can switch to the Tagged library tab to access them. Alternatively, you can switch to the Media tab in the right panel when editing an image and double-click a style to apply it to current layer.

If you upload the video to youtube, please send me a link, I am always curious how people are working with RWPaint.

Unknown author (2013-03-27 00:44:15):

The videos are going to be included in a commercial package of graphics I made, but I'll be happy to give you a courtesy copy when it's ready. I may upload them to YouTube at some point though.

Can you make text with no smooth pixels?

alecastelom (2016-05-03 20:55:58):

Hi, someone know how download more types of Text? I need have more variety. Can give me the link for download?


Unknown author (2016-05-29 12:52:42):

Yes, a website called 1001 font. You download a font, than click on it and do "install". Than when you open real world it will show up.

Unknown author (2017-07-31 18:56:53):

My text looks so pixel-ly and blurry. What am I doing wrong?

Unknown author (2019-04-10 16:40:20):

I have more text that fits in my space. I want the text to wrap into multiple lines and automatically adjust the text box width. |-)

dont even try non latin scripts, they failed instantly

Unknown author (2020-03-29 10:35:43):

Make it use GDI rendering so that I could use bitmap fonts and also have fonts that don't work with anti-aliasing at some sizes to have anti-aliasing disabled because that's what GDI does...

Unknown author (2020-10-07 21:35:33):

When I type in Persian, the letters are written separately, you may help me please.

Unknown author (2020-10-07 21:42:00):

yeah، in arabic right is too :-(

LewisTehKat28 (2021-02-28 04:11:10):

if you don't want blurry text try doing text with effects and setting shadow to 0.

also if arabic and persian font has letters seprate, maybe try moving the letters together with select?

Why cannot use wingdings and other symbol fonts? They show as normal characters instead of the symbol/dingbats.
