Formatting Text Boxes

Text box, line, and fill patterns can be formatted in two ways. Text can be within a shape itself, or added with the Text Tool.

Text boxes can be formatted to modify font and paragraph attributes, as well as the text box. Fonts can be modified by font face, size, color, case, and style such as bold or italic. You could even apply the new transparency option, and give your text lucid appearance.

Paragraphs can be modified for alignment, indentation, and spacing. Text blocks can alter their alignment, margins, and background and you can apply format changes to tab and bullet settings.
