    I used to be able to align one layer to another easily. Now for some reason when I create text over another layer it shows up in a box with a dotted border and a black dot on the bottom right-hand side of this border. When I try to align this text layer to another layer it says I must rasterize the layer first. After doing this the alignment works fine but then I'm unable to modify the text layer anymore. Instead I have to delete that layer and create a new one under the same parameters. How do I get my settings back to when I didn't have to rasterize a layer to align?
