Using the Text Tool

Fireworks MX has vastly improved the Text tool from previous versions. Instead of having to use the Text Editor to enter or change text and to apply fonts and styles, you can simply select the Text tool, specify the desired settings in the Property Inspector, click an area of the canvas, and begin typing. It’s that simple!

Creating Text Objects

Clicking the Canvas with the Text tool creates a text object, much like painting with the bitmap tools or drawing with a vector tool. And like bitmap or vector objects, text objects can be selected and rearranged on the Layers panel, grouped with other types of objects, transformed, and altered with effects. Like vector objects, text objects can be changed at any time until they’re converted into bitmaps through merging, flattening, or exporting. A text object also can be converted into a vector object, which will be discussed in Hour 10, “Tricks of the Trade.”
