Change Text

The Change Text tool allows you to change the text of an existing Text path. Simply enter the new text in the text field at the bottom of the screen and then tap the Text path that you wish to update. You’ll need to tap the Text path on one of its Snapping Points. The updated path will retain its current paint attributes. Here’s an example.


The Text tool lets you place a fixed size string of text on the page. The size is determined by the Paint Attributes and the Text Attributes. If you want to dynamically change the size of the text, you’d want to use the Text Dynamic tool. Text is added to a model by first entering it in the text field at the bottom of the screen and then tapping the location where you’d like to place it. [Read More]

Text Along Path

The Text Along Path tool allows you to draw a Text path along another existing path. For instance, you could create a Line Segment, warp it using the Move Bezier Point tool and then draw the text path along this curve. Here’s an example. The are several construction options available when creating a Text Along Path. You can retain or delete the path along which you draw the new Text path. [Read More]

Text (Dynamic)

The Dynamic Size Text tool works the same as the Text tool except for two key differences. First, you can dynamically control the size of the text during construction by dragging your finger nearer or farther from your initial touch point. Second, because dragging your finger during construction changes the font size, you can’t reposition the text during construction. Use the Move tool later if you need to reposition it. Here’s an example. [Read More]
