The addtext plugin allows new text to be added to a page in a choice of fonts, colors and alignments. It may also be used to remove existing text from a page.
Addtext is the primary EscapeE plugin, and may be accessed directly from the EscapeE window's pop-up menu:
|1.||Open the document and display the page for the added text. To add text to an existing field, select it.|
|2.||Right-click on the page then choose Add text (or press Insert key) from the pop-up menu.|
|o||If an existing field has been selected the addtext dialog opens. If not then:|
|o||If a field on the page has been configured to utilize the addtext plugin, the addtext dialog is opened showing the field's setup. Otherwise,|
|o||A new field to contain the new text is created automatically and the addtext dialog is opened.|
|3.||Set up the text string, font, position and rotation: see also To add new text.|
To disable the addtext field, sweep out the text or click on the field; then select Delete text from the pop-up menu. See also Delete text below.
To reinstate the addtext field, click on the field then select Enable field... from the pop-up menu, or open the Fields dialog (Ctrl D) and tick the Enabled check-box.
If the original page contains text that you would simply like to remove:
|1.||Sweep out the text for removal.|
|2.||Right-click and choose Delete text.|
Note that only "real" text strings in a 'Delete text' field can be removed, not images of text.
