How to design a Static Page


Once you add your page, you can begin to design by adding text and image elements to the page. There are two areas where you can design:

  • Layers
  • Background

LAYERS

The Layers section allows you to add free text and image elements to the page. Elements at the top of the list will appear on top of all the others, while elements at the bottom will be layered underneath. 

 

Text Layers

Add a text layer by clicking ADD TEXT

Then a set of options will appear below including: 

  • A text box where you can enter the text you want to include
  • A font section that allows you to choose the font family, size, and color
  • Letter Spacing which lets you put more or less space between letters in a single word
  • Line Height which determines the space between lines of text on top of each other
  • Text Style - Bold, italic, or underlined 
  • Alignment - Left, center, or right
  • Box Opacity which lets you determine how transparent the text component is
  • Background color adds a color to your text box
  • Border and border color allow you to choose the thickness and color of the border of the text box (if you would like to include one)

Add an image layer by clicking 'Add Image'.
