Inserting texts

You can paste any text into your document by using the Insert - Lettering or Insert - Text commands. The difference between the two is the initial font.

A right-click on the label shows a dialog box, where you can enter the text. Less frequent characters may be entered in the following ways:

  • using Alt + numeric code of the character. For instance, the character Ω can be inserted by pressing Alt+937.
  • clicking on the selected character on the character map, which can be found in the left part of the dialog box. You can add the characters you need to use in the character map. This can be done in the program settings menu on the "Others" tab.
  • by entering the character from the Windows default character map (Start-Programs-Accessories-System tools-Character map).

Some characters may be displayed as a square. This is because these characters are not available in the selected font. Select another font. We recommend for instance the "Lucida Sans Unicode" font.
