Text

Add your own static text to your page.

Text

As soon as you select a text element, you can edit the text within the page itself. You can still drag the element by grabbing on to the edges of the element.

In edit mode, the shortcut keys for copying and pasting work on text only and not on the element itself. To copy the element itself, use the Copy button in the property box. To paste the element, deselect the text element first (e.g. by pressing the Esc key).

Properties

In addition to the property box on the side, the text element also opens up a separate text edit toolbar.

Toolbar

With this toolbar you can modify the following properties of pieces of text:

Property Explanation
Font family Sets the font type.
Font size Sets the text size relative to the overall text size.
Color Let's you set both the text color as well as the background color of selected text. Note that the first row of the color selector contains last used colors. The second row contains the company's default color palette. Row 3 to 6 contain a default color palette.
Style Let's you display your text in bold, italic, underlined, strike through, subscript or superscript.
Align Let's you align the text left, center, right or justified.
Ordered list Let's you create an ordered list with numbers, characters, etc.
Unordered list Let's you create an unordered list with bullets, dots, etc.
Indent / outdent Let's you indent and outdent text.
Table Insert a table. In the inserted table you can change several display options. With the mouse cursor you can also change column widths.
Emoticons Insert an emoji. Note that this might not display correctly on older web browsers (e.g. in certain older Smart TVs).
Undo / redo Undo/redo text edits.

On the left hand side you can configure the overall settings of the element as usual using the following properties:

Property Explanation
Overall text size Sets the base text size of the whole element.
Line spacing Sets the space between you lines.
Add some shadow Works like the generic property, but it is worth mentioning that this only works on the entire text and not the currently selected snippet of text.

And finally there are a number of generic app properties that you can configure that you'll find on many other elements as well.

Some text animations might not work 100% as expected with complex blocks of text. In that case, please choose a different animation type or simplify your text block.
