By default, the text element has no background color or is transparent. Click the box icon in the text properties to use the color picker to apply a background color to the entire area in the selection frame.

You can also apply a text style to an existing text afterwards. To do this, drag the text style from the Toolbox onto the existing text in the Page editor.
Or, in the Page editor, select the text you want to change and double-click the new text style in the Toolbox to apply it.

In the Apply Text Style window that opens, specify whether you want to apply only some or all of the properties of the new text style to the old text style. For example, to leave the black font color in the calendar and not transfer the red font color from the new text style, remove the checkmark from Font color.

Copying text to other pages

To copy a text to another page, right-click this text element in the Page editor and select copy or use the key combination  CTRL+C . The text element is now in the clipboard of your computer. Now go to the desired page in the page overview. Paste the copied text element into the page by right-clicking and choosing Paste or by using  CTRL+V .

Placeholder text elements in templates

Some templates contain placeholders, such as the title of the calendar, year numbers, the blurb or image captions. You can fill these placeholders with content by double-clicking them or right-clicking the text element in the Page editor and going to Properties.

You can customize the placeholder text elements from the templates in size, font, font size and font color if needed.

Unfilled placeholder elements are not included in the output.


In the Properties window of a text style, you can create a reference to an image. To do this, select the image associated with the text from the selection list.
If the template style is changed and the template also contains image placeholders with associated text placeholders, the text is adopted to match the image.

This reference is also used for the use of variables. If one enters placeholder variables in the text field, the information of the image will be displayed accordingly. Example variables: %capturedate% or %captureyear%.
