Hey Nigel,

How do I programatically select a text layer so it is highlighted
("grabbed") and will respond to pressing the "delete" key?

Seems to be default behavior to delete selected image(s) by pressing "delete" key but a text layer may have grab-handles around it but not respond to "delete" key.

Happy New Year,

I tested this using the layers demo by creating three layers and calling this code:

  ImageEnView1.LayersCurrent := ImageEnView1.LayersCount - 1;

It worked as expected (clicking Delete removed the text layer).

Can you give me more information?

Happens upon adding an ieTextLayer that layer is "grabbed" but not responding to "delete" key.
