Inserting Text Element

  • Click on the Insert Element button on top header bar.
  • Select Text.
  • A text element will appear on the canvas.

Entering Text

Mainly, texts are edited from Value field on the format tab right side. 

By default, the word "text" is entered to this area. You can enter your text there.

As a second and great option, you can use a datasource for regularly updated texts such as prices. To learn how to use datasource in scenes, visit 

Formatting Text

We will use format tab to go over the text settings.

Edit

  • Name: You can edit the name of the image to easily distinguish it from other elements you put on the canvas. 

Note: You can select your element by clicking on it under Layers tab. Naming your images is helpful especially in populated scenes with lots of elements.

  • Value:  As mentioned above, this field is where you enter and edit your text. Also, when you pick a datasource field for your dynamic texts, you can see the datasource path here. 
  • Refresh icon: In case you add the text via a datasource, this icon updates text area, and the current text in the datasource is reflected on the canvas. 
  • Delete and duplicate icons are self explanatory.

Font

  • Font-family: Select among many options. 
  • Font-size: Select the size of your text.  It is 120 px by default. 
  • Bold & Italic icons are self-explanatory. 
  • Text Color: Select the color by the dropper or entering a hex value. 
  • Alignment icons are for you to select where the text will appear in the text box. The icons are for the text to be left aligned, centered and right aligned, respectively.

Box

  • Box settings are opacity, radius and fill. Fill is the background color of the text container. Fill does not have a default value (it is transparent). You can select a fill color when you need a background for your text. 

Transform & Arrangement 

  • You can check the transform and arrangement settings from here.

Inserting Shape Element
