Thread: Text box has not worked for years on IrfanView

  1. #1

    Default Text box has not worked for years on IrfanView

    Ever since there was an upgrade to IrfanView a few years ago, I no longer can blackout information on pics using a text box (control + T) and selecting a black background. It says there is not enough memory, which is untrue.

    Here is a pic of what happens:

    What I tried to do (black out information) is in the box to the left. The error that results is in the box to the right.

    Please help! Thanks!

    Confirmed, if you don't type any text, but that's an odd way to black out an area of an image. Why not use Cut?

    Wow, thanks Bhikkhu Pesala, I never knew that. I just tried using "cut", and it worked! So I learned something new.
