d. Format Text

Text on a VUE map, such as text associated with nodes and links or free-standing, can be formatted.

To adjust text:

  1. Make sure the Formatting Palette is visible (Windows > Formatting Palette).
  2. Double-click the text. The text is selected.
  3. On the right end of the Formatting Palette, click any of the text tools, such as font face or size, and make adjustments. The text is adjusted.

Additionally, text inserted via the Text tool (as an independent object) can be formatted as ordered or unordered lists, and aligned, using the bottom right Formatting Palette tools.

For information on adding descriptive text to the map that is not part of a node or link, see the 04 Inserting Text topic.
