Chapter 14. IMPORTING > Importing Text

Importing Text

You can also import text saved in the ASCII or RTF formats into Fireworks documents. This is much easier than retyping long documents.

To open text as Fireworks files:

1.
Choose File > Import. Navigate to find an RTF (Rich Text Format) or ASCII text file.

Tip

You can also use the File > Import or Insert > Image commands to import text files into existing Fireworks documents.

2.
Click to place the text file in a text block the same width as the document 14.

Figure 14. RTF or ASCIItext can be imported into Fireworks documents.


or

Drag to set a specific width for the text block.

Tip

RTF text maintains all the font attributes that are in the Fireworks Text Editor. The character color comes from the first character color in the text file.

3.
Use the Text Editor to make any changes to the text.

Tip

You can also open text files as their own Fireworks documents. You can then add any images you want.
