Creating a Line of Text

Use the Text tool to create a single line of text, such as a page header.


To type a single line of text:

  1. Click the Text tool from the Basic palette, and select Horizontal from the Tool bar.

  2. From the Tool bar, enable the Tight Fill mode and set the Text Style.

  3. Click to designate the text insertion point; a text editing box with a blinking cursor displays.

  4. Enter the text. Text wrapping is off by default, so the text box automatically expands as you type.

  5. When the text line is complete, press the Esc key.
