Use the Text tool to create new text objects, type text into a document, and edit text.
When you create text objects with the Text tool, you can choose whether or not to set the column width before typing.
Whether you should set the column width before or after typing depends on the amount of text you want to type. For short labels and callouts, you might find it easier to simply type and let Canvas X Draw adjust the right margin. However, for paragraphs or newsletter columns, it is probably easier to set the column width before typing.
You can change the size of the text object by selecting it and dragging a selection handle.(missing or bad snippet)
When you type text, Canvas X Draw applies the current attributes and the current type format settings to the characters you type. For more information about changing ink and stroke attributes, see Text Inks and Strokes.
If the current fill ink is a gradient, hatch, symbol, or texture, Canvas X Draw applies 100% black to the text characters.
Use the Text Format Brush to copy text attributes, such as font, font style, fill ink, pen ink, as well as pen stroke, so that you can apply them to other text. This tool does not copy frame ink, frame stroke, or background ink. To apply these items to text, see To Apply a Background Ink, To Apply a Frame Stroke, and To Apply a Frame Ink.
Select the Text Format Brush tool.
The cursor changes to an eyedropper.
If you want to apply the text attributes to a single character or group of characters, drag across the character or characters until they are all selected. When you release the mouse, the text attributes will be applied.
