So I just started learning Photoshop a few weeks ago. I have ran into an issue while creating text layers. I have 2 small issues that I can honestly not really figure out, and I have tried figuring it out on Google for an hour and all the topics/answers are irrelevant.
Problem 1: I want to merge my text layer onto my other layers so it treats it as one whole layer and not a layer and text layer. I do not require the text to be editable anymore since I have finished it. Right now I am stuck with this
And what I want is the text layer ($312.87 USD) to be merged onto layer 2 and have 1 layer instead of two.
Problem 2: I want to be able to copy/paste the text layer ($312.87 USD) to another Photoshop project I have open which I cannot currently do. When I am on the text layer and try ctrl + c and then do ctrl + v on my other project, it doesn't paste the text. And I am guessing that if I can figure out how to merge the text onto the layer below it (Layer 2) then I could easily copy and paste it.
