I want to make it as easy possible for you to be as creative as possible when you use a Studio on the Corner printable. Just peek around the corner & guess what you’ll see? A glimpse of upcoming holidays. If you’re going to be ready it’s time to start on some of those holiday projects that add a bit of fun & style to your festivities. First let me share a few plans in the making.
A Class! Yes I’m going to hold a class & if you live in the area of NW Ohio, you’re invited. The class is for anyone who wants to learn how to use digitals & printables. Afterall, SotC printables begin as digitals. So we’ll take you step by step through the process from downloading to creating. It will be a basic class with a promise of concise clarity. Nothing irritates me more than taking a class, live or online & having to listen to 15 minutes of drivel. Sorry, but I’m a get-to-the-heart-of-the-matter-sooner-rather-than-later kind of person. Stay tuned for the details.
I’ve been a bit hesitant to do a tutorial about adding text in Adobe Reader. Why? Because I didn’t feel confident enough to share what little knowledge I have. In the past year or so I’ve researched, practiced, & finally think I understand the Adobe Acrobat programs much better. I can’t claim to be a pro at it nor do I claim that I know all there is to know about Reader but I’m ready to share the knowledge I have acquired.
I do want to let you know & this is my opinion only, but I believe there are much better ways to add text to printables than in Adobe Reader, however the program is convenient (add text & print from Adobe Reader) & fairly fast once you know how to do it. By the way, Adobe Reader is free to download, so go ahead & download the latest version. Just click ADOBE READER to be taken to the page that will get you started.
Adding text in Adobe Reader does not allow you to be creative. You cannot choose what font to use, what color you want your font to be, the size of the font or even the alignment. The creator of the PDF does all that for you, which makes it again, a convenient route to take especially if you don’t want to make decisions. Now that I have that little disclaimer out of the way, Here’s the tutorial. Yes, it’s a PDF to download.
All you need to do is hit the following bit of text:
This link will be on the Step by Step page along with the tutorial on Adding Text in befunky.com. As I write more tutorials, this is the page that will house them. So any time you want, just check out the Step by Step page to see if you’ve missed a new tutorial post.
Just want to read the tutorial right here? Well then… read on my friend.
You will not see the highlights after the PDF is saved and/or printed. The links in the above tutorial images are not clickable, but you’ll find them in the paragraphs preceding the tutorial.
One of the best ways to learn a program, any program, is by opening it up & messin’ around with it. Click on everything, open drop down menus & learn where things are in the program. The more you use it the easier it will be to use when you want or need to.
Studio on the Corner Etsy Shop will have a new listing this afternoon, Halloween recipe cards Witch’s Brew: Four cards with different images on 2 sheets & a sheet of plain cards to print on the back, if you wish. The cards are 4 in x 6 in & text editable. I’ll add the link once the cards are listed.
That should do it for today…hope you have the most marvelous weekend!
