Adding a single-line text box

A new, single-line text box can be added at any time.

  1. Select the Text+ (Text+ tool button) tool from the toolbar.
  2. Click to create a new, fixed size text box. As you type into this box it will stretch horizontally.
  3. If your fontsize is too large to fit and you see the red overset box on the right-hand size of the text box, resize the box by dragging on the North, South, East, West resize handles

Using the Text tool

New text can be added at any time by dragging-out a new text box of the required size.

  1. Select the Text tool (Text tool button) from the toolbar.
  2. Click and drag to create a new text box.
    After a short delay, the text box will be created ready for editing.
  3. Choose the required font and size from the formatting bar before editing.
  4. A new text box will grow downwards if there is too much text to fit into it. If you resize the box by dragging one of it's handles, it will then retain that shape and no longer grow to accommodate more text.
  5. If you see the red overset box in the bottom right-hand side of the text box, it means there is too much text to fit into the box. Resize the box by dragging on the North, South, East, West resize handles

Choosing the correct language

When editing PDFs written in various different languages please remember the following:

  • hyphenation will only work if the correct language is chosen using the File->Preferences... menu option. If the correct language is not available, it may be better to disable hyphenation.
  • spell check requires the correct language to be specified using the File->Preferences... menu.
  • Infix only supports editing of text read left-to-right. This means editing of Arabic & Hebrew texts is not supported.

Unicode support

Infix fully supports copy/paste of double-byte characters.

On a Windows PC, a double-byte character can be typed directly by holding down Alt while entering the decimal value of the character using the numeric keypad (ensure that NumLock is lit on your keyboard). The character will be inserted when you release the Alt key.

For example: Alt+0190 = ¾

(you do not need to type the ‘+’ character)

The character codes can be found by using the Character Map utility in most versions of Microsoft Windows.
