Artistic Text

Artistic text is converted to bitmap so the font does not have to be available on visitor's computer. This allows you to use sophisticated fonts, add shadows, outlines and fill text with gradient.

To add artistic text choose Insert > Artistic Text or click button. Enter the text and choose fill color, gradient and other options.

To modify artistic text double click it.
