Text placeholders are designated areas in your scene, into which you can add text. The text style (font and spacing) that is used in a specific placeholder is configured in the brand configuration. Your brand configuration includes five text styles that you'll need to configure before you begin customizing your scenes. The text style settings will apply to all the scenes in the program.

Warning:

As a brand configuration may be used in several programs, any change you make to the text styles will affect both the program you are currently working on as well as to all other programs using the same brand configuration. We therefore recommend proceeding with caution.

5.

Configure any or all of the following settings:

 

Font: Open the drop-down list and select the desired font and weight.

 

Letter case: Open the drop-down list and select the letter case. Note that the Small Caps case cannot be applied to some of the fonts.

 

Letter spacing: Open the drop-down list and select the letter spacing. This number refers to the amount of space between letters. The higher the number, the more white space there will be between the letters. The default value is 0.

 

Line spacing: Enter the percentage of the text size that will dictate the vertical distance between lines of text. The default value is 100%.
This line spacing refers to the vertical distance when text flows continuously and not to a paragraph break (Enter) between lines of text.

As you configure new settings for the text style, you'll see the changes immediately in the relevant placeholder. You can always use the revert icon revert_icon.png to return to your previous settings.

When you're happy with the new text style settings, click Save.
▶ You can also configure all the text styles before saving instead of one at a time.

Text Mapping Diagrams

If you would like to see how text styles are used in scenes, you can refer to the mapping diagrams below.

Generally speaking, not all the text styles will be used in a single scene.
