Exploring the Text Tab in the Inspector

The Text tab in the Inspector has three text control panes: Format, Style, and Layout. Each pane has a corresponding button located on the Text tab. Let's look at the Text tab panes before we modify the look of the FRANCES text object.

1.
Press Cmd-4 to open the Layers tab.

2.
On the Layers tab, select the FRANCES text object.

The contextual tab in the Inspector changes from a Generator tab to a Text tab to represent the selected object.

3.
On the Text tab in the Inspector, click the Format button to open the Format pane, if it's not already open.

The Format pane includes the font, size, tracking, scale, and other format-related parameters. Many of these parameters are also available in the Dashboard.

4.
Click the Style button to view the Style pane.

The Style pane offers four styles that you can apply to your text objects: Face, Outline, Glow, and Drop Shadow.

5.
Click the Layout button to view the Layout pane.

The Layout pane offers Alignment and Justification parameters.

6.
Click the Style button again to return to the Style pane.
