Tart Up Text

Hello! this post will attempt to show you some of the ways you can dress-up your submission.

Poets, they’re a funny lot aren’t they? They like to present their words just so. So with that in mind, I’ve tried to add a few things to the editor to make it easy for them to jiggle and poke their text into a form they are happy to submit.

For instance.

This bit of text is standard format. You can see that

each carriage return (enter) creates a double space (paragraphed)

Which is fine for fiction?

 

Trouble is, a poem is a group of short lines, each requiring a carriage return to the next line. Which creates a poem that looks double spaced. Poets are not amused!

 

Poets like to present their words
in a single-spaced format
like this!
So I’ve added a single space icon to the editor
which does just that?
All you have to do is highlight the text you want to be single-spaced
then click the ‘single-spaced’ icon to make it happen.

But what if you want to really mess with your text?

Well, you can create all sorts of mayhem with your words by using a couple of icons on the editor.

 

Space                    out            your                                            words?

 

Make them into a pattern single spaced maybe?

Well, you get the picture.
Speaking of pictures, you can add your own pictures, files and videos easily.
Before I show a couple of examples I’m going to show another handy feature which will allow you to break your long texts up into pages. User the ‘Page Break’ icon and… you get another page with a page link list below your text.
