            There are also several other ways to select text in Photoshop Elements when in “Edit” mode. You can choose “Select| All” from the Menu Bar to select all of the text in the layer. Also, as when using word processing applications, you can double-click a single word to select it. You can triple-click a line of text to select it. You can also quadruple-click a paragraph to select it. When editing type layers, you can use most of the traditional methods of text selection.
