Please read the article: About Fonts for more details.

Auto scale when text is too long

Set a limit for text frame-width. It will help to scale text size when text is long and reach the frame-width limit.

For short text like names, we suggest that you set the max-width for text frame equal to 500 - 600 px.

Text Background

You can also set a background effect for the custom text fields.

You can now create a paragraph

Creating the Paragraph

Inside Artwork Editor, click the + icon and select Paragraph option.

Creating a new Paragraph

Paragraph container

Adjusting the paragraph box

Things to keep in mind:

The container size will be fixed, all text in paragraph will not exceed this container.
If the text is longer than the width → the text will break to the next line

If the text is longer than the height → the text will auto scale down to fit its container
If the text is shorter than the height → the text will remains the same, the maximum font size should equal the font size that you set for the paragraph.

Paragraph alignments

Horizontal Alignment

Setting the alignment

Vertical Alignment

Setting the alignment

Auto scaling (vertical)

The paragraph will automatically be scaled vertically. You cannot disable this setting.

Things to keep in mind:
On your Product Page, if the text is longer than the container’s height, the font size will be reduced to fit the text into its container.
The auto scaling feature does not work on Artwork Editor yet. You will have to try it on Campaign Editor, or Product Page.

Adjust font properties

You can use the following properties:
Font Size
Font Family
Font Color

If a paragraph reaches its container box, increasing font size will do nothing.

The font size will not change if the paragraph reaches its container's border

Text background

Background will fit with the paragraph content (not the container box)

Using text background feature

Text character limit

This will be applied to the whole paragraph, not each line individually. The input of [Enter] or [Spacebar] will be calculated as 01 character.

Vertical offset

You will find this setting in Extra section. This setting is used to update the paragraph position of your rendered order design.

Sometimes, depending on the custom fonts you are using, a paragraph's position might be a few pixels off in the order design.
We can’t calculate exactly position of some handwriting fonts. Therefore, the position of the paragraph on Artwork and Product Page might be a few pixels off with the position on Order design:

If the paragraph is top-aligned (vertical align), it will be moved down a few pixels on Order design.
If the paragraph is bottom-aligned (vertical align), it will be moved up a few pixels on Order design
If the paragraph is middle-aligned (vertical align), it will be in correct position, not be deviated at all. You will not need to use this setting.

If these cases happen, follow the following step to fix the position of the paragraph of your orders:

Step 1. Open the Artwork, and adjust the vertical offset setting.

Setting the paragraph's vertical offset
Use this option to correct it (- 1 to move up 1px and + 1 to move down 1px)

Step 2. Save the Artwork once you are done.

Step 3. Regenerate the design file.

You can repeat from Step 1 to find optimal result.

Step 4. Be sure to update the Campaign once you are done. You will not have to repeat these steps anymore.
