  2. Specify the Shape, Font, Text Color, Background Color, and Text Alignment.
  3. Select a Background Image for the text box. You can select .png, .gif, .bmp, or .jpg image files.

Other Options

  • To re-size the comment box, point to a side or corner and drag to the desired size.
  • To change the visibility of the comment box in relation to other tools on the canvas, right-click the tool and select Bring to Front or Send to Back. For more information on tool options, visit Build Workflows.
