Multiple layers of text, each layer has a title.  How do I highlight just the title of each layer so I can apply a different font?

The title pretty much says it all.  I am making a menu and each item is a layer, which of course has a title and a description.  I am tired of going into each individual layer to edit just the title.  Is there any other way?

First select the layer with the text on it, then click on the text with the text tool. You should be able to highlight the text by left-clicking and dragging, as you do in MS Word.

If you're working with a lot of text you should try to use as few layers as possible, or it can get nightmarishly confusing. I generally don't use Photoshop for text work. If I want text over an image, I place the image in InDesign, or Illustrator, and use this latter software for the text work. Both InDesign and Illutsrator have far superior text handling capabilities.

Hope this helps

The title of a text layer usually reflects the first few words of the content of that layer and changes when the content changes. What is your objective in changing the title?
