Adding Text to Your Calendar

A text object is similar to a picture, only it contains text-a reminder or message-instead of an image. Text objects differ from event text in that they may be positioned anywhere on your calendar, within cells or elsewhere. You can add text to your calendar using the Add Text Objects feature.

To add a text box:

  • Either select Text from the Add menu, or click img. The cursor changes from an arrow to a cross (+). Click and drag to define the text object area. Release the mouse button and the Text Object Properties dialog box displays immediately.
  • You can also access the Text Object Properties dialog box for an existing text box by selecting it then selecting Properties from the Edit menu.

The Text Object Properties box has four tabs: Style, Special Effects, Shadow/Highlight, and Picture.
