Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Hiding selected text, part of Photoshop CS6: Text.
Very often, when you're modifying a Text Layer, you're going to select that text first. …You don't necessarily need to. For example, I could simply select the …Text Layer on the Layers panel, and then choose the Type tool from the toolbox. …And then, I could set about changing any of the attributes for the text. …And it will be reflected in the entirety of that Text Layer. …But at times, you will likely select the text for a variety of different reasons. …And when you do, things get a little tricky when it comes to evaluating the …settings, especially things like the color for that font.…
I'll go ahead and double-lick on the Text Layer on the Layers panel, and you'll see …that I now have this inverted version of this image. …And depending upon the specific color of the text and other attributes, the …display can vary quite a bit. But this can make it a little bit …difficult to apply changes. It's just, in general, a little bit …easier to evaluate our text if we don't have it selected. …
