About the Text Tab
The Text Tab is another option in the Asset Panel. Add or change existing text objects with options in this tab. The Text Gallery is divided into three categories to select text from:
- Suggested Text: Suggested text based on industry information and content found on the advertiser's website. (not available for all accounts)
- Suggested Reviews: Suggested star reviews from review and directory sites around the web. These reviews have been automatically filtered to only display positive 4 & 5-star reviews. (not available for all accounts)
- Write Your Own: Write custom text to insert into the ad design.
Add Text to One Ad Size
To add to one ad size, click and drag the text from the panel and onto the desired ad size.
Add Text to All Ad Sizes
To add to all ad sizes, use the command key (for Mac) or the ctrl key (for PC) and click and drag the text to the stage.
Edit Text Across All Ad Sizes via the Asset Panel
On the Asset Panel, click Edit next to the text box that should be changed. All frames and ad sizes that contain this asset will automatically change. Underneath the text field, you'll see your options to change the font, color, alignment, and styling of this text.
Edit Individual Text Via the Action Bar
Choose a text layer from any ad size on the stage. From the action panel that appears at the top of the editor appear options to change the font, color, and text styling. Additional options exist in the action panel to adjust text alignment, kerning and line height.
Customize Text with Google Fonts or Custom Fonts
Customize text using the Google font library. Download up to 3 Google fonts to use in the campaign. To access the Google font library, select View > google fonts from the toolbar or More Fonts at the bottom of the Font Menu.
To upload a custom font, select View > Custom Font. A window will pop up to load a .ttf file. You can drag and drop one at a time or several at a time. Click upload and confirm page reload to continue. Once the page reloads, the font will be available in the drop-down (not available for all accounts.)
To download a font to use in the campaign, select Click to Add Font. Search for fonts or sort fonts alphabetically. Click on Select to add it to the list of fonts. Notice the Google font that’s downloaded will now be an option in the drop-down Font Menu to stylize text.
To use a proprietary custom font, please contact support@makethunder or your Thunder Account Manager with the font request.
Rich Text offers more stylization than standard text options. These are the current Rich Text options available via the text editor or the text inline widget:
- Line Alignment
- Letter Spacing
- Line Height
- Special Characters: Copyright, Registered, Trademark, and Servicemark
- Text Show Scrollbar
- Text Shadow
- Text Outline
In addition to these options, inline editing options are now available. For example, portions of the text may have different stylizations within the same text block.
These features are still defined to block formatting only:
- Font Family
- Font Color / Opacity
Note: Bold and Italics may not be available as inline formatting options depending if it is a custom font or if the google font does not support those stylizations
