Text Properties

The properties used to modify a Text object are located to the right of the screen when your text is selected. These properties can either be adjusted right before adding the text to your landscape or after it has been added. Below is a description of each available property in the order that they appear in the software.




The Text property determines what text will be displayed. To change the text, click the small button that appears to the right of the current text.


The Font property determines the style of lettering that the text will use. To change the font, click the drop-down menu and select the font of your choice. Any TrueType font that is installed on your computer can be used.


The Style property determines whether the text style is italic, bold, bold and italic, or regular. To change the style, click the drop-down menu and select the style you wish to use.


The Alignment property determines whether the text is centered, aligned left, or aligned right. To change the alignment, click on the drop-down menu and select the text alignment you would like to use. Note that text alignment is only noticeable when there is more than one line of text.


The Height property determines the size of each letter of text. For example, if the Height is set to four feet, then a capital letter will be approximately four feet from bottom to top. The height will vary slightly based on the Font. To change the text height, move the Height slider or enter a value in the text field.


The Angle property determines the rotation of the text in degrees. To change the text angle, move the Angle slider or enter a value in the text field.


The Color property determines the text color. To change the text color, click the small color swatch that displays the current color.
