The Text Tab contains options for setting the text attributes of a figure(s). The tab will appear as shown below when selected in the Sidebar.
Values displayed in the Text Tab default to Points; however, alternative units of measurement may be typed in (i.e. pixels, millimeters, centimeters, inches, feet, etc.). These values will be automatically converted to their equivelent in Points after pressing the Enter Key on your keyboard or clicking in another area of TouchDraw.
If you enter 5 pixels (px) as the Font Size, then it will be converted to 5 points (pt).
Pixels and points will have the same number value after conversion when the default measurement is points; however, you can enter points or pixels for conversion to inches in other parts of the Sidebar such as the Adjustment Tab.
For example, if 1 centimeter (1 cm) is entered for the Font Size, then it will be automatically converted to Points after pressing the Enter Key on your keyboard or selecting another item in TouchDraw.
If 5 millimeters (5 mm) is entered as the Font Size, then it will be converted to 14.173 points.
