This is kind of a round about way, but it's the only thing I can figure out for right now.

This will show you how to fill text like this:




Select the pattern you wish to fill your text with. (for some reason it doesn't work with the lasso. Use the rectangular or elliptical marquee) Then go to Edit> Define pattern from selection. Save it as whatever you want..




Type out your text, then click the magic wand tool. (under the lasso) make sure you select the inside of the letters. Hold shift so you can click in multiple places (notice the inside of the A and the O are selected) Then, still holding shift, click the white part around the text.




Then go to Select> Inverse to select the text without the background.




Next, select the clone stamp tool (circled in blue) Make sure you change it to the Pattern Stamp Tool (circled in green) Then go to the pattern drop down menu (circled in red) and select your pattern. Then just draw over your text and it will fill it in.

That should be it! Let me know if you have any questions.
