Multiple Lines of Text

Multiple Lines of Text

The text tool is limited to a single line of text. If you want to have multiple lines, you will need to add each line individually. The example above features (2) lines of text in separate Drop Zones. If you need a lot of text, we recommend that you export that single spread (using the export range function) to PSD and place your text in Photoshop.
