Text objects are very easy to work with. Take a look at the video below on working with text:

To add text, click the “T” icon above the Stage. Next, click anywhere on the Stage and you will see a text box appear. The Properties panel will change and show Text Properties. Enter your text in the box to replace the default "Type Here":

Once you’ve typed your text, you can start adjusting it. Change the font type by selecting any of the over 40 available fonts from the drop down box next to Font Family:

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

Multiple users belonging to a company or organization and having a Business license, can also have their own unique company library with custom fonts.

You can also change the text style of individual words into bold or italic by clicking the icons next to Text Style.

You can change the color of your text by clicking the box next to Text Color and selecting a color from the color panel that appears. You can also change the background color of a text box by selecting Background Color. Here you can also modify the transparency of the text background.

In the same way you can add animations to graphical objects, you can also add animations to text objects. First select the text object you wish to animate in the Timeline, then click the ‘Add Animation” button. 

Please note that the Hand Writing animation is only available for text objects:

Finally, you can also lock the size of a text box in the text properties panel. In this case, as you keep typing text in your text box, the font size will automatically decrease while respecting the size of the text box. You can increase and decrease the size of the box using the sliders:
