Lesson 2. Adding Pages and Text > Using the Text Tool

Using the Text Tool

FreeHand gives you almost all of the text-formatting tools you’ll need to add and modify text on your pages. Although FreeHand is not designed for extensive page-layout duties, it can certainly serve your purposes for many of your designs. If you have a text-laden newsletter, stick to a page-layout program. If you have a product datasheet, you can create the graphics, import the text, and then format the text all in FreeHand.

Note

Check with your printer to make sure the company has FreeHand MX if you plan to send your files to be printed from FreeHand. If the printer doesn’t have the current version but has an earlier one, you can export your file and save it as a FreeHand 8, 9, or 10 document.
