Susan, thanks for following up. As Susan pointed out the link (for grouped masking, the Layer link; for Layer Mask using the free tools the link between the mask and content thumbnails) can help you keep the positioning consistent between the mask and content if you plan to move the letter layer.

One last little tidbit...the styles you have on the type will only show up for the internal portion of the type. If you have drop shadows or other design Style elements that fall *outside* the letters they would be best applied to the Letter Mask layer in the steps I described. Be aware that the transparency of the mask will affect how much of the effect will show through...This can get pretty tricky to control if you want the transparency and effect (e.g., dropshadow) to mask out independently. it can be done, but you may not want to do it all with one layer grouping...

Hope that helps!

Richard and Susan,
Thanks for all the help. I thought I had tried the locked layers to move the text and mask but I guess I didn't. It does work just as you said it would.

I thoroughly enjoy working (and playing)with HPPE. I am just a hobbiest but it gives me my creative outlet in life.
