Just in case your handwriting isn’t as pretty.

The Text Tool allows for typing text directly on the page in Showbie documents for when longer text is needed. You can customize the colour, font size, and alignment of text. The text is editable after it’s been saved and Showbie keeps track of who authored the text and when it was created or last modified.
