Change Text Box

You can change a text box's look, such as its background color, size, and border. Text boxes are great for labeling images since you can change each independently.

  2. Click Edit Website.
  3. Click the text box you want to edit and click Settings.
    Click Settings to display the text effects editor.
  4. Use the Text Settings box to add or edit effects for your selected text box:

    Background Color
    Besides setting the color with the first box, you can select Gradient to blend that color with a transparent block or second color. Click the little switch-block arrow to toggle the blend direction between vertical and horizontal. The Text Settings box applies effects tot the entire text box.
    Border
    Click the box (set to transparent by default) to choose a color, click the middle arrow on to select a border style and then set the border width by entering a number in the px field.
    Shadow
    Apply one of four lighting effects to text box's edge.
    Rounded Corners

    Transparency
    Drag the slider to the right to make the entire box — and the text within it — more transparent.
    Margin
    Drag the slider to the right to add more space around the text in the box.

    While you can resize the text box by dragging any corner, entering numbers in the Width and Height fields makes it easy to specify a particular dimension.
