Change Font

To change your font, you first click on the text box. Once selected, at the top left of the panel, choose over 120+ fonts from the dropdown menu.

Once you have selected your font, the system will automatically apply to the text box.

Change Font Size

To change your font size, you first need to click on the text box to select. You then click on the down arrow at the top left panel to choose your font size or input your own size by typing in the number as shown below. You could also use +/- to increase or decrease the size.

To resize multiple texts size at the same time, you first hold down the Shift key on your keyboard to select and click as many texts that you want to resize. Once you have selected all the texts that you want to resize, you let go of the shift key. You will see a four-corner dots which means that the text has been selected. Reach to one end of the dot using your mouse and click and drag to your desired font size.


In order to use the text link, you have to select your text box. You then click on link icon on the top right of the panel. You can link to website/social media, Link to slide or Reveal a hidden object (pop-up texts).

Link to web is when you want to input a website link. Once you are done, click Apply.

Link to slide allows you to link to another slide. This works when you are working on a presentation with multiple slides. This one also applies if you have multiple blocks in your Infographic.

Pop-up is to reveal your object or text once you click on the object or text. Let’s look at the example below. Let’s say you want to reveal the body text of the Quote text. You would first select the subhead (Quote of the year) and then click on link icon at the top right of the screen. You then click Pop-up tab and convert layer to Pop up “Quote” text. Once you applied, go to Preview at the top right of the screen. Hover your mouse over the “Quote of the year” text, it will reveal the body text.

Tip: To view the layers of all the objects and texts, click on Menu at the top left of the screen and select Show objects list in the dropdown. It will show up on the right panel. You can edit the name so it is easier for you to know what text or object is link to what.

Text Background Color and Text Color

To add text background color, click on A letter with white background option at the top panel. Select a color and it will change the text background color to the color that you chose. If you want to remove the background color within your text box, simply choose the transparent color option.

To change color of the text. Click on A with red underlined.

If you wish to replace all the existing colors, you can replace them all simply by clicking on the Replace all option. For example, if all the objects and the texts within the project is in red and you would like them to change to a orange color, you will first click on an object or text to orange.
