Pictures and text

Pictures also possess a text element. To format this text proceed in exactly the same way as a normal rectangle. You can use this text element to place lettering over the picture or to give the picture a caption. Usually you will produce text as a separate object and then group it with the picture because you have more flexibility in what you can do with the text. Here are two examples showing what is technically possible with text elements. The construction of each is carried out using a format style.

DG10p19a.png tab: Font, “Comic Sans MS“, Size 48pt

tab: Font Effect, color white, with shadows

tab: Alignment, Options Left/Top

tab: Text, Text anchor “left upper”, and Spacing to borders left 0.5 cm, all others 0.0 cm

DG10p19b.png tab: Font “Albany“, Size 12pt

tab: Alignment, Options Left/Top

tab: Text, Text anchor “left lower”, and Spacing to borders bottom -1 cm

Note: the line break after the word “XX” was inserted manually.

If you store the picture using File > Export the text will be exported along with the graphic. If you use the context menu, Save as graphic, then the text is not exported.
