Adding text

To add overlay text, select the slide in the storyboard panel and then select the 'Text& Images' tab option on the left.

The decorations top panel is split into two sections. The first tab allows you to add text to the slide including setting the font, justification, color, and various drawing styles.

To add new text to the slide, make sure the 'Text' tab is selected then left click on the ‘Add text’ button or alternatively double click over the slide in the preview panel where you wish the text to appear.

Once you are edit text mode (a black border around the text with a flashing cursor), simply type in the text you wish to add. To stop editing the text simply left click on a different part of the slide.

If you wish to re-edit a piece of text, either:- double click over the text, select the text then left click 'Edit text' or right click over the text and select 'Edit text'.

To move, re-size or change the style of a text decoration, left click over it. This will then bring up a dotted tracker around it. You can now move it by dragging it to the desired location, resize/rotate it by dragging the yellow tracker markers or change it's appearance by selecting the appropriate option in the left panel.
