There are a variety of ways you can edit text in Infogram. Choose the one that suits your current project:
Editing text in template projects
Use the settings panel on the right to edit the text element size, rotation, transparency, font type, size, color, style, alignment, line height, and letter spacing. You can also add numbered lists or bullet points, as well as hyperlink text.
To resize and rotate text objects:
❶ Click on a text object to select it.
❷ To resize, you can either drag and drop the corners of the text object in the editor or change the number of pixels for the text object width and height in the Settings tab.
❸ Rotate the object by entering a degree of rotation from 1° to 360° if you want to be precise, in the Settings panel. You can also adjust rotation with your keyboard controls directly in the editor. To do so, click the circle rotation handler at the top and rotate to the right or left.
Adjust text transparency by moving the slider in the Settings panel, or by inserting a percentage of transparency from 1 to 100.
The lower the number, the less transparent the text will be. The higher the percentage, the more transparent the text will be.
