Easily add, adjust and animate text objects

Text objects are very easy to work with. To add text to your content, click the “T” icon above the Stage. Next, click anywhere on the Stage and you will see a text box appear. Double click the default "Type Here" text in this text box to select it, and start typing to replace it with your text:

Once you’ve typed your text, you can start adjusting it. While your text object is selected, you can modify fonts, size, color, background, and more in the Properties panel: 

Resize the text by resizing the bounding box around the text on the Stage. Or, change the font size using the Font Size box.

You can change the font type by selecting any of the over 40 available fonts from the drop-down box next to Font Family:
