Adding a new text; Main Heading, Subheading, Body Text

To add a new text, click on the Text section from the left sidebar and pick one of the options. 
The options available are "Main heading" "Subheading," and "Body Text". Each text type has a specific purpose and can be used to convey different information to the viewer.

Main Heading is the leading and largest text that appears in the template and is often used for post or presentation slides. The main heading is the first thing that captures the viewer's attention and sets the tone for the rest of the design.

Subheadings, on the other hand, serve to provide more clarity to the main heading without overwhelming the viewer with too much information. They appear often under or after the main heading and are smaller in size compared to the main heading.

Body text, usually the smallest text element in the design, provides the most detailed information. Though it may not be as attention-grabbing as the main heading or subheading, it's an important part of the design as it supplies the viewer with the information they need to understand the message of the graphic.

You can also edit existing text in your graphic design. To do this, simply click on the “selected text” on the graphic and start writing your own text. This allows you to easily make changes to your design and fine-tune the message you want to convey to your audience. 

Adjusting the Text's Appearance: Fonts, Strokes, Borders, and Alignments

If you want to choose a font family for your text, you can do so by clicking on "Font Family" from the toolbar. Once you have clicked on it, you will be presented with a list of font families to choose from. Simply select the font family that you would like to use and it will be applied to your selected text. To use your own custom font in your projects, click the "upload font" button located down the font family dropdown. This will enable you to upload and utilize your desired font directly from your device. Keep in mind that different font families have different characteristics and it is a good idea to use them in a way that will complement your overall design.

To adjust 'Strokes' and 'Borders', or 'Highlight' a text first click the 'Effects ' button located on the toolbar. Then, select the corresponding toggle for either Highlight, Strokes, or Borders to adjust their color or/and thickness. This action will activate the associated adjustment bar, where you can increase or decrease thickness, and change colors as per your requirements.

The Highlight feature is used to emphasize specific text or areas, by applying a contrasting color behind them to make them stand out.

Strokes outline the letters in the text. Strokes can also be used as part of the design concept to add an extra layer of visual interest.

Borders, add frames around the overall text box. Like strokes, they can be used as part of the design concept or to bring attention to certain text boxes

Properties such as bold, italic, and underline can also be used to add emphasis to specific text elements.

Alignments, or the position to which the text is anchored, can also be adjusted for a more balanced and professional-looking design.

Simply click on the desired option from the given options. For example, if you want to bold your text, click on the "Bold" option, if you want to align your text to the right, click on the "Right alignment" option.

Letter Spacing and Line Height Adjustments

To adjust the letter spacing and line height in your graphic design, use the Spacing Adjustment Bar. This feature allows you to fine-tune the spacing between the letters and lines of your text to achieve the desired look and feel. To increase the spacing, slide the round-shaped slider on the bar to the right, and to decrease the spacing, slide it to the left.

This feature is a great tool for making sure your text is legible and visually pleasing, and it's easy to use.

Adding Shadows and Curved Texts in Graphic Maker Tool

The shadow feature can give your text or objects a more three-dimensional feel, making them pop off the background. Here's how you can add and adjust shadows:

  1. Click the Effects button from the toolbar
  2. Toggle the 'Shadow' option to activate it.
  3. Once activated, you can adjust the shadow's properties. 

There are several parameters that you can manipulate:

Color: You have a variety of options for adjusting the color of your shadow. You can input a specific Hex or RGB code for precise color matching. Alternatively, you can use the color picker tool to visually select a color. For those who have a preferred color palette, the 'My Colors' section is available, which stores your previously favored colors for quick access and consistent color usage across designs.

Horizontal and Vertical Positioning: These adjustment bars allow you to change the shadow's direction. Moving the horizontal bar will shift the shadow to the left or right of the object while adjusting the vertical bar will move it above or below the object.

Blur: This adjustment bar lets you control the shadow's sharpness. Sliding it to the right will blur the shadow, giving it a softer, more diffuse look. Sliding it to the left will make the shadow crisper and more defined.

Curved texts can be a fun and unique way to add visual interest to your designs. Here's how to create them:

  1. Click the Effects button from the toolbar
  2. Look for the 'Curve' toggle and click on it to activate this feature.
  3. After activating, use the adjustment bar to manipulate the curvature of your text. Sliding the bar to the right will increase the curvature. Sliding it to the left will decrease the curvature, making the text straighter.

Experiment with different curvature levels to see what works best for your design. Curved text can be an excellent way to fill empty spaces or to follow the contours of other design elements.

Color Change Options in the Text Section

To change the color of the text click the desired text and you will see the color button. You can then select from default or suggested colors, add a custom color code to your palette, or directly choose from the My Colors section.
