Step 28: Add Remaining Text

Set the 'Personalize' text to Gabrielle, Size 40pt, and the 'Huggable Love' text at the bottom of the flyer to NotMaryKate, Size 24pt.

Repeat the step to change the Color of the Huggable Love text at the top and bottom to our Red from the Document Palette.



Step 29: Adjust Leading/Line Spacing

You'll notice that the text at the bottom seems to overlap the Red Layer.

To fix this, simply click anywhere in the paragraph and adjust the Line Spacing in the Paragraph section of the Text Properties Docker.

If you have trouble finding it, just look out for this Icon.

Set the Line Spacing to 80%.

So the almost complete flyer should look something like this:

The remaining text uses the Gabrielle Font, at Size 36pt, Align Center and has Line Spacing set to 80%.



Step 30: Save File

Now all that's left to do is Save your file.

Go to the Menu Bar and select File > Save.
