I have an image with a column header tab and existing text.
How do i edit the existing text using photoshop cs4?
I have the layer open, i have the 'T' and can add new text, but can figure out how to edit the existing text.
Thanks

Are you saying you have the text you want to change in a seperate text layer or not?
If not, you can't change it easily.
You'll need to re-do the text.

Text is only editable as long as it's seen as text by photoshop. Photoshop can only handle text as a text layer.

If the image you posted is all, I'd say just take the color with your color picker, brush over the text and insert a new text layer with the text you need.
