How to Format Text in the Media Editor

Are you working with some text layers in your new Media item? Then you’ll want to know how to format your text from within the Media Editor.

STEP 1: Open your media item and then select the Data tab at the top right of the Media Editor, if not already selected. Click on the Text Layer that you wish to format, if it is not already selected. This will select the Text Box on the working Preview.

STEP 2: To get the formatting tool to appear you can either highlight the portion of text that you wish to format or you can double click on the text box. The formatting toolbar will appear below the selected text.

From here you can Bold, Italicize, and Underline, as well as change the font family, font size, color, and alignment. In addition, you can also select all text from the formatting tool or clear all formatting that has been applied.
