A text box allows you to modify text as you would in a word processor, like Google Docs.

Word Art has more style options, but the text is modified as one block.

To start, insert a text box.

Click anywhere on your canvas to create a text box, or drag the box to a specific size.

Then, type your text.

To modify the style, size, and color, highlight the text you’d like to change.

Then, modify it using the toolbar.

Click and drag to reposition the text box.

Next, insert word art.

Type your text.

To enter text on a different line, press “Shift” and “Enter” at the same time.

Press enter.

Your text appears on the canvas in a default style and color.

To change the color of the letters, select a “fill color” from the toolbar.

To change the outline of the letters, adjust the line color.

You can only choose one color combination.

If you’d like different colors of text, insert more Word Art or text boxes.

Once you’ve added text to your logo, move on to the next video to learn about more advanced editing options.
