    I'm working on exercises in a book, and I'm kinda stuck.

    These are the steps

    File>New
    draw button with ellipse tool
    switch foreground/background (white/black)
    select Type tool
    click on ellipse shape
    type "button" (which creates a new layer)
    enter settings in Type Pallete ie; pixels, font, center button.

    Well it's not really centered. What can I do?

    The exersize goes on to add bevels and shadows and stuff.

    The way I do it is just hit the arrow keys on the keyboard till it looks centered. It is easier then dragging it with the mouse.

    Ahhh! Very nice! I just selected the move tool.

    I was trying to do it with the Text tool and Text pallete. (They didn't mention that in the book, they just show you a picture that doesn't look anything like my miserable work! heheh)

    Thank you!
