3.31. Textboxes

Textboxes are simple objects whose purpose is to create small reminders or documentation over the model. These objects can have a custom font style per instance, giving the user freedom to create several objects with their customized appearance (see below). The only exception is that the background color is tied to the global appearance settings.

Textboxes can be freely resized without the use of line breaks in the text like in the older version. The initial width of the object will be defined by the width of the text input in the text box editing form. Once the object is created, just click it in the canvas area (keeping the left mouse button pressed), hold Shift, and move the cursor to determine a new width for the text box. Only the width can be adjusted by the user because the height is determined based on the new width specified by the user during the resize movement.

Attribute Description
Font Configures the font style for the textbox. Users can specify the size (in pt), text color, and styles like bold, italic, or underline.
Text Text that will be visible when the textbox is created. To simulate a multi-line textbox, you need to do manual line breaks.
