You can create two types of text objects: free text and paragraph text. Free text consists of one or more lines of text and can be used to insert a single word or short descriptions. Although there is no limit to the length of the text, free text is suitable for containing short lines of text. Paragraph text is inserted within a frame and automatically adapts to the frame width even when the frame is resized. Paragraph text is indicated for adding blocks of text within documents. The text can be inserted directly into the object's properties window, or you can import ASCII format text from an external file. Text alignment can be defined.
