Text Box

Text boxes are useful when you want to include styled text, links, and media to a layout.

Note: See Create/Edit a New Layout for instructions on how to add a message box to a layout.

Edit a Message Box

Mouse over a "text box" to show the "Edit content" button.

Note: You can also check the "Show Hidden Buttons" option at the top of the layout editor to display all buttons on all components.

Click the Edit content to open the "Edit text box dialog"

You can do the following in the "Edit text box dialog":

  • Add or edit the text, links, or media displayed

  • Format text with color, size, bold, italics, or underline

  • Add tabs or bulleted or numbered lists and justify the text to the left, right, or center

  • Add variable text that is populated with the layout loads like student and course name

  • Clear all formatting

Click Save to save and display your edits.

You can also resize a "text box" by dragging the "double line" on the right side of the box.
