Type Repair Droplet

The Type Repair Droplet addresses a data corruption issue identified in files created by Adobe Photoshop 7.0. Under certain circumstances, Photoshop 7.0 can create a text layer that is written incorrectly into a PSD, TIFF, or PDF file. When trying to open a file saved with this kind of text layer, Photoshop will report the following
error message: "A problem was encountered reading layer "xxx" because the layer is not a valid text layer. The existing pixel data will be used instead. Continue?"

Dropping affected files onto the Type Repair Droplet will repair the flaw and allow Photoshop 7.0 to open the files without rasterizing text layers.

Note: The Photoshop 7.0.1 update corrects the issue that could cause corrupted type layers. Photoshop 7.0.1 can repair files corrupted in Photoshop 7.0, so it is not necessary to use this utility with Photoshop 7.0.1.
