7. Texts – Titles & Paragraphs
So, what’s the difference between Title and Paragraph?
The content of the title will automatically resize itself to the size of the title box, while the content of the paragraph will keep its original formatting (text will not automatically resize). Use titles for shorter texts, or bold typography, and paragraphs for longer blocks of texts. If you’re not sure what to use – use Paragraphs.
Adding new text:
- Click Add an Element located on the upper grey-bar.
- Click the Paragraph or the Title element.
That’s it – a new Paragraph or Title will be added to the screen.
- Double-click on the text or click once on the text and choose Edit Paragraph located on the upper black ‘paragraph’ bar. The text editing menu will appear, containing all the standard text settings: Font, Size, Style, Link, Alignment etc.
- Select the text you’d like to modify and change its settings using the text editing menu.
- When you are finished modifying the text, click anywhere outside the text box.
Copying text from other sources:
Generally, we recommend copying texts from word documents and not directly from an external website since HTML text copying sometimes comes with extra ‘styling’ data. If your pasted text behaves “funny”, select all of it and click both “CU” (CleanUp) and “RF” (Remove Formatting) buttons – they will clean it up.
IMC comes with tons of great fonts, free for both commercial and personal use.
If you are looking to add new fonts – contact us at email@example.com and we’ll consider adding them to our next version (we’ll make sure their license permits it before that…)
We support them all.
RTL / LTR:
Working with Right-to-Left/Left-to-Right text is fairly simple. First – be sure to clean your text after pasting it (see: Copying text from other sources), then switch the whole text to the right direction by clicking the “Right to Left” button.
