Any text element in a template design can be enabled for dynamic replacement.
When text is replaced, formatting beyond a single font and font size will not be retained. Therefore, maintaining different fonts or font sizes must be done with different text layers, each enabled for dynamic.
To make a text element dynamic:
- Create a new text layer, name it consistent with the expected feed column name, and set the layer label to green to indicate it will be dynamic.
- Convert the text to “paragraph text” by right-clicking on the layer and selecting “Convert to Paragraph Text.” Set the paragraph text bounding box to be big enough to handle the longest dynamic text you want displayed.
