ADDING AND EDITING TEXT CAPTIONS

Even in a photo book, we sometimes need to add text. For those occasions, PixPublisher allows you to easily add text captions to any page.

    • ·         Start by clicking on the tab along the left side of your screen marked TEXT.
    • ·         On that tab you’ll see an icon with a T on it. Click on that icon, drag it over to your page and drop it roughly where you’d like the caption to be.

  • ·         This will add a text placeholder onto your page that looks something like this
  • ·         To edit the text, just double-click in the placeholder and enter your text.

ENTERING TEXT

    • ·         You have several options for entering text. You can type it in manually, or you can copy and paste it from somewhere else.
    • ·         If you would like to change the color, style, or size of just a portion of your text, you can do that also.
    • ·         Just select the portion of text you’d like to change.

    • ·         Click on the font size, color or style you would like to set it to on the toolbar that appears next to your selected text caption. You can change multiple settings if you wish.

    • ·         You’ll see the selected text change accordingly. In this case I made the selected text larger, italicized and red.

The ability to change portions of your text makes it easier for you to call attention to certain words in your captions, or to emphasize certain words or letters as a style choice. text5

* Please note that you are not able to change the font within a portion of selected text at this time.

CHANGING TEXT STYLE

When you add a text caption to a page, the caption will be set to the default for that book. In other words, if the standard text for that book is set to 26pt Arial in Medium Gray, and new captions you create will automatically be created at 26pt Arial in Medium Gray.

If you decide you’d like to add multiple captions in a different style, make your changes, and then click on the copy style option on the toolbar next to the selected text. This will replace the default style with the one you have selected. Any new text captions you drag onto your pages will automatically take on this new style.
