To edit text, you must put a text object in Edit mode. In Edit mode, you can revise, delete, insert, and select specific text. Only one object is in Text Edit mode at a time.
Put a text object in Edit mode with the Text tool or Selection tool. When a text object is in Edit mode, the text object becomes opaque, the selection handles disappear, and a flashing insertion point appears. Also, the Text tool becomes the active tool.
Select the Text tool and click in a text object. An insertion point appears where you click, and you can begin typing or editing.
You can identify whether you are in Text Edit mode by the Status bar or the following icon in the Properties bar:
With the Selection tool, double-click a text object. If you double-click on a word, the word becomes selected and is highlighted. The Text tool is selected, and you can begin typing or editing.
With the Path Text tool or the Text tool, click the text. An insertion point appears in the bound text, and you can begin typing or editing.
Press Esc when you finish text editing. Canvas X Draw switches to the Selection tool from the Text tool. The text object you were editing is selected.
