Canvas X Draw has a full range of text and typography features that let you integrate text with illustrations and images. You can enter, format, edit, and arrange text in Canvas X Draw. You can also import text files and use Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) to place text in documents. To help you edit and proof text, Canvas X Draw provides spell-checking and text-searching tools.
The Text tool palette contains the tools you use to create text objects and edit text.
Link Info: Use the Link Info tool to check text flows in a document. The tool displays arrows showing the flow of text among linked text objects.
Text Section: Use the Text Section tool to create sections and columns in the text.
Vertical Text: Use the Vertical Text tool to create text objects and edit text when you are using a double-byte language.
Vertical Text Object: Use the Vertical Text Object tool to draw fixed text objects for page layouts when you are using a double-byte language.
Table: Use the Table tool to quickly create tables. Use the Text tool to type in each cell individually.
The Vertical Text and Vertical Text Object tools are only designed for languages that use vertical text, such as Japanese. These two tools are only available if you select the Enable two-byte script checkbox on the Type page of the Text manager in the Configuration Center. If you change this setting in the Configuration Center, you must close Canvas X Draw and restart it before the setting is applied.
