Here is a simple tutorial on how to edit the text in a Digiluxe PDF template.
Once you have installed the newest version of Adobe Reader DC and downloaded your template from your Etsy Purchases Tab — begin with step one.
- Open Adobe Reader!
- Click FILE > OPEN and navigate to the template you saved and then CLICK > OPEN.
Upon opening Adobe Reader, CLICK > CTRL + E to open the Text Properties Tool Bar. This tool bar will be used for all text edits and will be blank until you start working with a line of text.
Lets start by editing a single line text box. Place your MOUSE CURSOR within the text box and at the end of the line of text. DRAG backward until the text you would like to edit becomes highlighted. As soon as the highlighted text registers in the tool bar, your text options will appear.
To edit the line of text, keep the line of type highlighted and just start typing! Your text will replace the text in the box. Once you are finished, simply CLICK outside of the text box to deselect the row you were editing.
You are welcome to change the typeface within a template to suit your own preferences, however keep in mind, that the text boxes provided can NOT be moved or re-sized, so the type that you choose MUST fit into the text boxes. If the typeface is being cut off, then the typeface you are trying to use must be used at a smaller size.
To change the typeface, use your mouse cursor to highlight the text you would like to edit and then use the dropdown box on the toolbar to scroll down and select a new typeface. To change the size, use the number/point size dropdown directly right of the typeface dropdown.
Repeat the steps above for all of the type layers that are editable text with your purchased template.
