Engage 360's streamlined user interface lets you add and format text with ease. We redesigned the text editor to give you even more control over text and paragraph styling.

Adding Text

Select an item in the Steps panel on the left side of the screen, then use the center panel to enter text for it. Type your text, or copy and paste it from another source. It couldn't be easier.

Formatting Text

The second tab on the Engage ribbon (which corresponds to the type of interaction you're building) includes the most common text formatting features, such as font, size, color, alignment, and bullets.

Go to the Format Text tab on the ribbon for even more formatting features, such as clipboard options, subscript, superscript, symbols, and line spacing.

Here are some tips for working with the font and paragraph tools:

  • Hover over any button in the ribbon to see its function.
  • You can apply formatting to a word, phrase, paragraph, or entire step. To quickly select a word, just double-click it. To quickly select a paragraph, triple-click any word in the paragraph.
