Page & Layout Designer offers everything you need for manipulating text.
You can enter your text at any angle and you can also set your text along a curved path. Additionally, just like any drawn object in Page & Layout Designer, you can freely resize it on the page, and produce creative display text by applying any of the effects, such as transparency, fills, molds and so on - and yet the text remains editable.
Like any word processing program, you have full control over the text style and format - you can change the font, size, color and justification of the text, alter the line spacing, tracking and kerning, and have bold, italic, superscript, subscript or strikethrough. You can set margins, tabs, indents and outdents and easily create bulleted or numbered lists (with your own custom bullets and numbers if you wish).
Text can be entered as stand alone single words or lines at any place in the document, or in single or multiple columns with advanced text flow controls between the columns, and with formatting controls such as column and page breaks.
And there's an added bonus; Xara's industry leading screen rendering makes the on-screen text a more accurate representation of the final print result, especially at small sizes or rotated.
