This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

Some people think ArtPaint doesn’t support colored text. Ah, but it does! Here’s how…

  1. Add a new layer to your project.
  2. Use the text tool to create your text.
  3. Use the color balance add-on to make your text colorful.
  4. You can even give each letter a different color by selecting only some characters of the text.

Sean Long ( adds the following:

There is a much easier way to add color text in ArtPaint. You first select the text tool and click on the canvas to bring up the tool dialog. You type the text you want to display then highlight that text and open the palette window located in the Window menu. With the palette you select the color you want the text to be and the text changes to that color.
