The" Big Word" slide type is beneficial for focusing the viewer's attention on a single fact, figure or label and then giving a longer explanation. It's also handy in creating a list of different kinds. And with its rather unique setup of position and animation controls, it can be used in a lot of fun and useful ways.
Usage and behavior
- The Big Text field has the Huge typography and will also scale up if need be, it's designed for being a one-line field and holds 12 characters.
- The Main Message field has the Large typography and can hold up to 100 characters.
Both text fields have animation controls so that you can chain multiple slides with the same text together for specific use cases.
You have position control for the text fields with Top, Center, and Bottom choices, where the two text fields will position themselves accordingly and as a unit. This means the placement depends on the text content and can vary from slide to slide, which is the case with almost all text in Storykit.
So when chaining slides with the same text (as you can see examples of in the Main Example movie above), we are also giving you the option of exact height placement of the text field's upper edges. This lets you place the text fields in precisely the same place on multiple slides regardless of the text content. This also means that you actually can change the sorting order, placing the Big Text below the Main Message if you want to. Or you can create a larger separation between texts.
The slide preview in the editor will show the placement as precisely as possible, so you can place the texts without having to make a preview render.
You access these parameters by clicking "Advanced positioning" to "On" and input your pixel values for each field. The pixel value is "distance from the upper edge of the slide canvas to the upper edge of the text field," so a higher value means further towards the bottom of the slide.
