Properties for Text object

When you select a Text object, there are various setting options for the Text object in the Object settings window, which you will learn more about below. To influence the text properties, the text or text parts must be selected in the text field.

In the font field and the font size field you set the font and letter size. Use the color selection field to influence the font color.

The icons for Text bold and Text italic influence the font style.

The text alignment as well as the position of the text in the text frame is determined by the following symbols:


Text is left-justified.

Zentrierter Text

Text is displayed centered.


Text is displayed right-justified.


Text is arranged in justified type.


Positions the text at the top of the text frame.


The text is centered vertically in the text frame.


Places the text at the bottom of the text frame.


Fit in: Reduces the font size so that the text fits completely within the text frame.

The Insert variable field can be used to insert Exif and IPTC data into the text.
In the Effect section you make settings for text border, text shadow and text effects. These settings are applied to all the text that is in the text box.
If you want the text to be animated, you can select various predefined animations from the list. Via the button Tfx Edit effect you can adjust the animation individually. There you can also see a preview of the animations.

Under Behavior along a motion path you can define how the text behaves when you have assigned a motion path to it. You can choose whether the entire text block should be moved or whether the individual letters should run along the motion path. In this case, the letters "nestle" along the path.

If you want your text to run along a specific path, you can find instructions on how to do this in the "Motion paths with text" chapter.

Rotation around text center refers to animations in which the text is rotated. You can also specify a different rotation center under Adjust.


If red rectangles are displayed when selecting a font in the font list, this is an indication that the corresponding symbols cannot be displayed in this font and will be replaced by a standard font in the project.


Animated transparency is described in the "Animated transparency" chapter.


How to save the font settings is described in the chapter "Program settings" in the item "Default image settings".
