The new preview function makes it easy to test and try different settings. With the preview you can experiment with the following settings:

  • Font type
  • Font size
  • Shadow
  • Font variant (normal, bold….)
  • Transform (uppercase, lowercase…)
  • Word spacing
  • Letter spacing
  • Line spacing

To make it easy to experiment with the settings, the preview tool has a graphical UI, that instantly displays the effect of the settings.
