Styling text
Text frames provide a number of pre-set styles to ensure clear and consistent presentation across your reports. Styles are pre-designed for clarity and finesse ‘straight out the box’, so there’s no need to modify them. Occasionally it’s useful to customise small sections of text for emphasis (bold, italic, underline), to change text alignment (left, right, centred), to add bullet points, or sub- or superscript. Styles can be removed with the 'clear formatting' button [Tx].
3 tips for better text styling
1. Keep line lengths short-to-medium
About three-quarters of a portrait page width is a comfortable maximum.
2. Avoid adding bold or underline formatting to headings
Quantemplate styles are designed to look great
‘straight out the box’.
3. Use left-aligned text in most cases
Left-aligned text is easiest to read. Centred text is good for title pages, right-aligned text can sometimes be useful for labels – to the left of a graph, for example.
Text and images
Place text over images to create professional finish title pages. Drag the text over an image and Quantemplate switches the text colour between black or white for optimum contrast with the background image.
