    Default Unable to Manipulate Text on an image

    Once I add text to an image I am unable to move, delete, or change the text. I add it by drawing a text box and then use the Edit->Insert Text function. The Backgr transparency is set to Transparent and Text transparency is set to None.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    That's the way it is. IrfanView is a bitmap editor and does not support layers.

    Use the hold to preview button or the Paint plugin (F12) for more options. Undo, then reposition the text area to move the text.
