Adding Text

One of the first elements you'll add to any design is the text. The simplest text to add is the text that you type directly into your publication. Click over one of the newsletter's columns to highlight the column. When you begin typing, the highlighted text will automatically disappear. (In the Office programs, as well as most other Windows programs, when you select text and start typing new text, the new text always replaces the selected text.)

Therefore, now that you've selected the first newsletter's column by clicking the column, you can begin typing the text that you want to appear in that column. The first thing you'll notice, as soon as you begin typing, is that you might not be able to read what you are typing! That's okay because you can press F9 or the toolbar's Zoom in button (with the plus sign) at any time to zoom into the text that you type. Figure 23.7 shows zoomed text being entered into the first column. Use the horizontal and vertical scrollbars to bring whatever zoomed text area into view that you want to work with.
