Add a text element with auto-sized font by clicking the Text tool icon, then clicking anywhere on the canvas, holding the mouse button, and moving it anywhere to draw its dimensions.

## Text properties

This Content field contains the text displayed by the element. There is support for Emojis. To set the Emoji style (Facebook, Twitter, Google, or Apple) go to the template settings.

In the Size settings, you can specify how the text element calculates its font size and dimensions.

The Spacing settings allow you to adjust letter spacing (the horizontal distance between letters) and line height (the vertical distance between lines of text).

If you want the text to fit on one line, set the Wrap option to "No Wrap". The default is to break the text into separate lines.

When the text overflows the element's borders, you can use the Clip setting to cut it off with an ellipsis.

The Alignment setting determines how the text is aligned in the element's area, both horizontally (left, center and right) and vertically (top, center, and bottom).

The text color is set using Fill. For an outlined text, uncheck the Fill option and use Stroke instead.

Apply a background with the Text Background option. Make the background larger by using the Padding option and create rounded corners with Radius. To align the text background with other text lines, use Align Threshold. This is a percentage of the element's width (0% disables the alignment).

The Text Transform option allows you to apply an "Uppercase" or "Lowercase" transformation. It's especially useful if your text element is populated with external data, and you want to enforce a specific text casing.

View all properties that aren't specific to text elements on the element properties page.
