How to choose and apply text effects.

Monday, December 11th, 2006

Still not sure how to select effects for your text? I’ve uploaded a video showing the steps on how to create and select a text effect.

Here are the steps:
1. Click on the text tab. It will expand and you will see some options and a “Create” button. Click on it.
2. On your workplace, you will see a that some text will be created, double click on it or click on the “Input” button. A new window will open up. Type in your text now then click “OK”.
3. On the right side of the panel, there you will see the available effects. One is “Entry” and the other “Repetitive”. Click on any of the two. It will expand into another menu then you can select your effect here. For this example we chose the “Snow” effect.
4. A preview of the effect will play. Just click on “Apply” then you are set! Don’t forget to save your work!

Text Effects 101

Tuesday, December 5th, 2006

You all probably know how to enter text but have you ever tried all the effects available?

Text effects make your static pictures more lively. There are currently 2 types of text effects which are Entry and Repetition. The Entry effect activates when a new slide loads and this happens only once. The Repetition effect is an effect that keeps on running until the slide stops or when a new slide loads.

In the coming posts I will discuss each text effect and give some useful tips on where and when to use them. Stay tuned!
