Adding Text Read more… You can add text to an object (e.g., bubble callout, rectangle) by simply clicking on the object and typing. You can also use the properties dialog for the object. If you want the text to appear by itself, you can edit the properties of the object accordingly so that the object border or background cannot be seen (e.g., specify no border or color for the shape). Otherwise, the object will be shown with the text inside. See Adding Text.
Note: If you enter text that is too long to fit inside the object and Auto-size to fit text is disabled, you will see a red plus where the text is cut off. This lets you know that you need to manually resize the shape to fit the text. Click the plus to see the text in its entirety.
See Setting the Rectangle Properties for an Object.
- Aligning Text Read more… After you add text to an object, you can easily align the text within the object. See Aligning Text.
- Editing Text Read more… After you add text to an object, you can make changes to it as necessary. See Editing Text.
- Setting Font Properties for Text Read more…
In the properties dialog for the selected object, you can set the font properties by using either the Font tab or the Rich Text tab (depending on the type of object selected).See Setting Font Properties for Text.
