    How do I edit text in Edge Animate?

    BYS Designer

      I do not code.  I just want to format my text boxes in Edge.  What if I only want a portion to be in bold?  What if I want to indent in a certain spot?  I have been cutting and pasting from a word document.  Some formatting comes through while some does not.  Please advise.

       

      Thank you.

          This is easy - just use html tags and styles or use and load a css file.

          Example:

          sym.$('Text').html('<p style="color:blue; text-indent:15px";>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Morbi vel velit turpis. Fusce elementum lorem in mi rutrum accumsan. Fusce rhoncus nisi ut diam lacinia, nec rhoncus velit sodales. Suspendisse et varius dolor. Pellentesque eget nisl congue libero eleifend placerat. Nulla facilisi. Nunc non auctor est, non porttitor lacus. Quisque mollis fringilla posuere. Praesent in orci eu sem laoreet placerat. Nulla aliquet erat quis quam mattis, malesuada maximus mauris ullamcorper. Nam tincidunt, magna finibus venenatis consequat, ex ligula cursus orci, quis egestas massa nulla non nibh.Donec non scelerisque purus. Aenean vitae leo non velit interdum aliquet. Curabitur iaculis cursus elit, placerat egestas diam malesuada eu. Mauris a turpis a ex malesuada congue. Proin at pretium turpis. Sed scelerisque neque elit, suscipit lobortis dolor mollis quis. Donec bibendum dignissim sapien et facilisis. Vivamus sed ligula augue. In pharetra augue ut justo sagittis, sed semper ante tristique. In tempor accumsan lacinia. Donec placerat magna ac metus volutpat, eget suscipit justo sodales. In in eros scelerisque, dapibus orci eu, hendrerit mi. Curabitur tincidunt nibh nibh, id tempus dui rutrum non.</p>');

            I have no idea what you are talking about, but thank you for taking the time to assist me.  I will have to take a computer programming class I guess.

              I would encourage you to learn some basics about CSS and HTML. This is a must i you want to do anything web.

              This is pretty simple:

              1. do to stage/compositiomReady
              2. write tis ; sym.$("yourtextfieldname').html();
              3. inside the () for html you can use normal html tag for example <b>text to be bold</b>  or anything else.

               

              There is no direct formatting in EA right now.
