I am trying to put text inside a shape. I have read the directions online as to how to do this, but it is not working. I make a custom shape, then switch to the text tool and click on the shape, but the text does not go inside the shape as people say it should. Please help! I am working with Adobe Photoshop 7.0 Thank you.

That feature wasn't added until Photoshop CS (Photoshop 8.0)

Manually position lines of text to fit either by line breaks or create separate layers for each line of text to position them more accurately.
