Text asset.png Add and edit the text that appears on screen. Use the Style drop-down list to apply styles to your text. These styles are defined at a project level by the skin applied to the project.

The following is a list of markup you can add for basic formatting:

Basic font markup

  • [b] [/b] - bold
    • Example: [b]Some text[/b] gives Some text
  • [i] [/i] - italic
    • Example: [i]Some text[/i] gives Some text
  • [bi] [/bi] - bold italic
    • Example: [bi]Some text[/bi] gives Some text
  • [u] [/u] - underline (not supported on the native apps at the moment)
    • Example: [u]Some text[/u] gives Some text

List markup

  • [ul] - start list
  • [li] [/li] - bullet point
  • [/ul] - end list


[ul] [li]Item 1[/li] [li]Item 2[/li] [li]Item 3[/li] [/ul]


  • Item 1
  • Item 2
  • Item 3
