How do I add text to a card?
Text boxes are marked with a T. These can be single lines for short messages or boxes for a paragraph. Some designs have multiple text boxes on a page. Here is how to handle text in the dotPhoto Card Designer.
Click on the T to open the text box.
Type text into the box, and highlight it by either dragging the cursor over the text or double-clicking on it. Subsequent changes will not affect text that is not selected.
Choose text style from the drop-down box. In the example above, the text style has been changed to Script MJ Bold.
The AA button changes the size of the text: a slider drops down; sliding it to the right increases the size of the text.
U toggles the underline on and off.
The gold box in the example shows the current text color. Clicking on the box helps you select other text colors.
The next box enables textual alignment left, center or right.
A similar box enables textual alignment vertically. For a single line, centering vertically is usually the most pleasing.
- If there are multiple text fields on a page, click on the right arrow to move to the next text field. Note that, in the example below, all text modification options are not available because the designer has established a certain look for this card.
- When finished, click the Done button. If you are not pleased with the result, click on the text again to make further modifications.
