The text element allows you to add labels to your print layout. The text elements are encoded in RTF-Format.

To add a text element to your layout, click on the element and then drag it to the desired spot on the white page.

You can also change the properties of each text element in the element settings window.

Here's an overview and description of the properties:

Changing the style of text

Text elements are encoded in RTF-Format and so if you want to change the size or color of the text for example, you have to write the text in a Texteditor which supports RTF (for example WordPad), edit the style there and copy/paste it in Text-Settings textarea in the Print Layout Editor.
