Adding a text box

  1. Select the title of the page you wish to edit.
  2. Select the Pencil icon at the top-right corner of the page.
  3. In the edit panel on the left of the page, select Text. Alternatively, you can click and drag the text item to any cell on the page.
  4. In the pop-up window, select the cell of the page layout in which you wish your new text to sit. The selected cell will appear in a darker shade of grey. Select Add.

    Note: All cell content can be reorganised later by clicking and dragging from the main page.
  5. In the Text: Configure window which now appears on the right of your screen, you can create and format the text of your cell. Enter a title and content: most of the options available to customise the content will sit under the drop-down arrow under Block content. You can choose to make your text block Retractable when the header is selected, or Automatically retract until the header is selected, or not retractable, via the drop down arrow. When you are happy with your text, select Save.
  6. You will see the new block of text in the corresponding cell. Finally, select the Display page button at the bottom of the page to save and display all your changes.

  • Text boxes are best used for small blocks of text up to 2 - 3 paragraphs. For larger more complex documents see the instructions for embedding a PDF document.
