Tutorial 5: Text on a Text Frame
Placing Text on a Text Frame
Users create text sequences (messages) with two types of frames—either a graphic or a text frame.
Creating a text sequence using a text frame allows users to edit the text later.
This tutorial explains how to:
1. Enter text on a text frame.
2. Format text using the Text Editor.
3. Draw a rectangle on the background layer.
4. Outline text.
Upon completion of this tutorial, the sequence will look similar to the examples below:
1. Open the Sequence Designer by clicking Edit on the Venus 7000 Shell.
2. Click File > New. Click the plus sign next to 96x224 or next to the desired sign. Click the drop-
down arrow next to File Types and choose Sequences. Double-click the Default folder. Type
“Text Frame” in the File Name text box. Click OK.
3. When a new sequence opens, the first frame is always a
graphic frame. Click the Insert Text Frame button . The
screen’s lower-left corner contains information relevant to the
number of frames within a sequence.
4. Click the Previous Frame button. Click the Delete Frame button . Click Delete Current and
Close. There is now one text frame in this sequence.
5. Click the Text tool. Go to the Color Palette and click a color.
Type “Daktronics” and press the [Enter] key, type “Est.” and
press the [Enter] key and then type “1968”.
