There are 3 simple ways to add Text to the board:
- Select Text on the toolbar or press T on your keyboard, click anywhere on the board and start typing.
- Drag and drop a text widget from the toolbar right to the board.
- Click anywhere on the board and drag your cursor holding the left mouse button.
Formatting options are available while you are typing, and whenever the text box is selected. You can choose the text font, text box color and opacity, align text left or right, change font size, highlight etc.
✏️ Text boxes have a limit of 6,000 symbols. The limit includes spaces and all style changes in code, so text formatting may decrease the number of symbols you can input.
Text formatting options
To edit text, double-click it when using Select, or click it once when using Text.
You can create customized links in text boxes either via Insert link option on the context menu or Link to option on the three-dots menu:

Bulleted and numbered lists
Bulleted and numbered lists help break up large blocks of text easier to grasp and make key information stand out. To start a bulleted or numbered list, type a dash or a number and press the spacebar. You are able to convert any text that you entered into a bulleted or numbered list by using the List type tool in the menu. Feel free to customize your lists and make them multilevel:
Creating a multilevel list
Copy and paste text from other boards and third-party applications using Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V (for Windows) or Cmd+C/Cmd+V (for Mac) shortcuts.
You can also quickly apply a particular style to all shapes or text boxes on the board. To quickly copy and apply formatting, use the shortcuts Ctrl/Cmd + Alt+ C and Ctrl/Cmd + Alt + V or buttons in the context menu.
Copy and paste style
Please note, formatting cannot be copied from third-party applications. The only exception here is bulleted and numbered lists.
