Using Text Tools

There are two ways to edit a text object:

• As with other object in Motion, you can edit text by using the parameters in the

Properties Inspector, or by using the onscreen controls.

• You can edit the text characters using the Text parameters in the Text Inspector or in

the HUD.

The following interface tools are used to edit text in Motion:

• Toolbar

• Text HUDs

• Text Inspector

This section discusses using the Text tool (in the toolbar) and the Text editor (in the
Format pane of the Text Inspector) to create and modify text.

Note: When text is selected with the default selection tool, you can use the standard
onscreen controls to move and animate the text in the Canvas.
