The Text field in the Inspector panel supports multiple lines of text and most languages. Some languages may not display properly in the field, but will render correctly in the Preview panel. Currently, special characters (ç, ñ, etc.) are not supported by the Alignment property. Use the Rotation property instead to achieve text running vertically.


Text will show up at different sizes depending on the preview video used. The Camera preview, as well as preview videos/images that you've added, will display text at an inaccurate scale. You should only build text effects using built-in Media previews.
