Is there a way to add text to a graphic? I can't find one, and I even tried pasting from a word processing app. Wouldn't work.

Thanks!

No. PMView is an image viewer and converter. Until it excels in this field it should remain such. At some point we will add simple editing functions and the possibility to add text. (Adding text is especially non-trivial since most people demand very advanced anti-aliasing functions).

Pasting text will work fine if you just make sure that the text is put to the clipboard as a bitmap (=graphics). Your word processing program puts it there as text, so this will of course not work.

For now you can use the freely available OS/2 program Embellish (www.dadaware.com) to add text.
