Let’s examine all the details of the first function Text&Media which is the first icon.
Text and Media can be used for a variety of purposes; for example
- Links: Link to other web-content either on your own website, or that of the client
When you click Text & Media component you will add that particular element to your StoryTeller.
When you click inside the component on the Menu feature or right click inside the element you get 2 buttons: Edit and Menu.
The size and position of each component can be changed by using your mouse.
We now have our component placed and sized the way we want. Now let’s see what are the functions of the sub menu that we opened from the edit function.
- edit content – opens the new window where you can edit and populate the content of your text & media element
- edit header/footer – change the headers and footers or your text & media element
