Edit and Format Text

Learn how to upload and manage your custom fonts, how to edit and format text, how to wrap text around an object, and how to take advantage of every other text-based trick in Lucidpress.

The ability to upload custom fonts is available on Professional, Team, and Enterprise accounts. See our pricing page to upgrade.

If you have one of the above accounts, you can upload custom fonts by doing the following:

    1. Click on a textbox within your document. A “Text” tab will appear to the right of the canvas in the context pane. Click on the font selection menu and then “Manage Fonts”.

    2. In the Font Manager, you can view available fonts by category and enable fonts to be used in the editor by turning them on. To add custom fonts, simply click “Upload Font”, select the file(s) (.ttf, .ttc, or .otf) you’d like to add, and hit “Done”.

Please note that unless you upload bold, italicized, and underlined variations of your custom font, the corresponding “bold”, “italicized”, and “underlined” buttons will be disabled.

You might notice that some font types, like Arial, are unavailable. We've provided a list of similar alternative fonts that you're free to use.

Note: Custom fonts are account specific. If you are collaborating on a shared document, the custom fonts in a shared document need to be uploaded into each collaborator’s account so the font is visible for each and every collaborator.

Add a text box to your document by clicking the appropriate icon to the left of your canvas. Fill out the text box by typing out your content or pasting it in.

You can format your text by highlighting the desired portion and then referring to the Text tab to the right of the canvas. Here you can change font style, size, color, alignment, warp, and more.

If you have multiple text boxes you’d like to link (so the text from one box carries into another), click on the light blue box on the lower-right corner of a text box and drag the blue line to the upper-left corner of the next text box.

  1. Select the image or object you’d like to wrap your text around and go to the Layout tab in the context pane to the right of your canvas.
  2. Under “Text Wrapping” (make sure it’s on), select the second option — “Wrap tight to object boundary”. Right-click the image or object and hit “Bring to Front” so that your text will easily wrap around the object.
