Intro to Text Boxes in the Campaign Slide Editor
In this article, we will review Adding and Editing Text Boxes in a Campaign Slide.
Text Boxes allow you to add written messages to a Slide in your Campaign. Whether the text is the Primary Content, or if it is an accompanying caption for a piece of Media, adding a text asset is one of the main functions you'll use on a daily basis when it comes to creating or editing content and messaging.
Adding a Text Box to a Slide
1. On the Toolbar at the bottom of the page, click Text.
2. Choose from the options available:
Add Simple Text Box - The default option in most accounts. Allows the user to pick Font, Color, Text Size, and Alignment. Up to 10 Simple Text Boxes can be added to a Slide.
Add Advanced Text Box - Gives the user a few more options on top of those available with a Simple Text Box: Format (Bold, Italics, Underline), Line Height, and Shadow. Up to two Advanced Text Boxes can be added to a Slide.
NOTE: If you don't see Advanced Text Box as an option, and would like to add it to your account, reach out to your Account Manager at 877-344-8450 ext. 2 to activate it.
