    Default Chinese Characters not visible on the image in PHotoshop 7

    Hi,
    I am trying to add some chinese characters to an image in TIFF. Using Photoshop 7. I have added a layer on the image (white layer) and added english and chinese text to the layer. On the Tool Palatte, I see the Chinese text. On the image, I see only English text but not the Chinese text.

    Can someone urgently help me to see the Chinese text please.

    I've never manage to type any Chinese in Photoshop 7.0. I restored to typing it in MS Word, do a print screen and pasting over. If I paste any Chinese over it will become "???".

    Hi all,
    The regional language settings has Asian been enabled. I have installed Chinese font on to Windows fonts folder. I have coped it to Adobe fonts folder as well.

    I still do not see the Chinese text on the layers.

    Hi,

    I sometimes encounter problems typing chinese text directly into photoshop as well. I presume you are able to type chinese text in other programs like MS word. My workaround is as follows:

    1. open a MS word document
    2. enable chinese input
    3. type the chinese text
    4. copy the text
    5. create new text layer in photoshop by typing anything (i.e. "aaa")
    6. edit the text layer and paste in the chinese text
    7. change to the font desired

    This usually works for me. hope it works for you too!
