A lot of you write to us about the text editor and what it can do. Among the most frequently requested features is the ability to create multiple text styles within a single text box.

Previously, text formatting changes—such as font name, size, and color—affected an entire text box. That meant that if you wanted to combine a bold line of text with an italic line of text, you would have to create different text boxes for each style. That old way of editing text was not as efficient as it could be so we got to work on an improved text editor.

Now, with Wideo’s new text editor you can apply text changes to a single character, a selection of characters, or an entire area of characters.

What’s New

  1. Double click a text box to apply formatting options to individual characters.
  2. Single click a text box to apply formatting options to all of the characters in the box.
  3. Text automatically word wraps to the size of the text area when double clicking a text box.
