How do I use the Text tool?

Add text content, labels, notices and symbols.

The Text tool creates textboxes. To use the tool, click on the Text tool icon , then click anywhere on the whiteboard to create a textbox. While the editor is open, type in your text with your keyboard and click outside the textbox to finish. 

Editing text boxes

To change the text inside text boxes, either double-click on the textbox with the Select tool, or select the Text tool and click on the textbox once. 

Changing the font and colors

You can change the typeface, font size, and text color via the Options. Use the Select tool to select the text box, then click on the Options button to bring up a palette of options. This menu lets you change the font, font size, text color (Fill style), text box background color (Background) and its opacity.

 

Moving, resizing and rotating the text

You can move, resize and rotate the text box with the Select tool by clicking on the text box, and using the visible controls to edit the shape. Resizing the text box changes the available area of the text, but does not resize the text itself. To change the size of the text, open Options and change the font size.
