Rich text editing

In Milkymap Text Widgets and Lanes, you can use rich text editing. This will allow you to add either bold, italic, strikethrough or underlined text. You have different alignment options: left, middle, right or justified. Justified text creates a clean edge on both sides of the text block. You can create either bulleted or numbered lists, as well as selecting a font family and font size. You can choose to use headings in different sizes (paragraph, heading 1, 2, and 3), and change the colour and background colour of the text. Lastly, you can add links to your text fields.

You can also use rich text editing in Milkymap and Episode descriptions, as well as in the Touchpoint titles.

Tips to Create Impact with Text

Create different Text Lanes and add different Labels to them. This will allow you to create a custom Lane, with information that is useful for your team or organisation. A few examples of what kind of Lanes you could create:
