In today’s lesson, I learn about Point and Area Text and their benefits towards creating text.
To start, head to Text Tool inside the Tools Panel and click and hold down to reveal the hidden type tools. Each of these tools gives you the ability to type different texts, 2 of which will be focused on in here.
Point text is a type of text where it’s added to a specific point in the document and it’s the most common. With it equipped, click anywhere on the artboard, popping up a blinking cursor that allows you to type.
In contrast, Area Text is also a type of text that creates a text box. This is effective for accurate size of the text in your artwork. Using the Selection Tool, you can also resize the box.
