Like a text box, just type your text in.

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.

Open the desired assignment. Tap on the T in the toolbar and then tap anywhere on the document to begin typing. When you are finished adding text, make sure you tap DONE to save your work.

Font Options:

To access the font options for the text tool, make sure you have selected the text box you’d like to change, and then tap the text tool icon again. Here you can select font sizing, format and colour options!
