A Guide to the Text Tools in Paint 3D


The T icon is for the Text tab. Within the text panel are the options to create
both 2D and 3D text. Both work in the same way. Start by dragging a
text box. This defines the area in which the text will
write. It can be rescaled and rotated using the
bounding box. Text can be formatted in all the ways you would
expect, with fonts, size, colour, style and
alignment. With 2D text you have the additional option to
background fill the text box with a colour. When you are happy with the formatting, simply
click outside of the text box to apply it to the
canvas. Once applied no further changes can be made. With 3D text, clicking out of the text box will
create the 3D text model. Again, you will no longer be able to retype or
reformat the text. However, because it is a 3D
model, you can reselect it to resize and
reposition. 3D text can be an inventive way to make new 3D
shapes. Different characters and fonts can be useful to
create new primitive 3D objects to use in your
scenes and models. So give it a go and get creative with text in
Paint 3D. Follow the link for more tutorials.
