Text Tool

The Text Tool can be used to create a text area within a drawing. To use this tool, simply select it and perform a Touch/Drag gesture combination at the point in the drawing canvas where one of the bounding corners of the text area should be. Then drag in any direction and release the Touch action where the other bounding corner to should be located.

Modifying Text

The Text Editor will automatically open after the Text Figure has been added to the Drawing Canvas.

Use the keyboard to enter desired text and then tap on OK to exit the Text Editor.

Once text has been entered, it will appear similar to what is shown below:

The text figure is different from all other types of figures because it only shows text. It cannot have a border (stroke) or be filled; however, displayed text can include a shadow.

Text can be altered any time after a Text Figure has been added by Double Tapping on the figure.

Cancelling Out of the Editor

Tap on Cancel to exit the Text Editor without making changes and view the Text Figure within the Drawing Canvas.

The image shown below containing the default text "double tap to edit text" will appear if the Text Editor is closed without making any changes.
