So you scrolled through all of the ready-to-go styles but you couldn’t find the right text style for your needs? Don’t worry, you can create your custom text style!
Start by opening the content drawer and right-click to create a Expressive Text Style under the Expressive Text category.
Opening the file will access the Style Editor, where you can add different parameters like font, outline size or adding a reveal animation.
Have a look at the Parameters page to know about all changeable properties.
After adding the parameter(s), you can make adjustments as you want, with the convenience of being able to preview the results on the left side panel.
For a fully immersed experience in your customization, you can even shrink the editor window and collapse the preview panel, to only access the parameters and see the text being changed in-world. There’s also a light/dark background toggle in the style editor, making it easier to see how your custom text style might look in different scenarios.
If you want to add material(s) to your custom text style, we recommend checking the page on .
That’s it! Once you’re happy with your custom style, use it in your Expressive Text Asset default style or use a tag to reference it by its name.
If you don’t want to create a style from scratch, you can inherit properties from other styles, meaning you can add a style(s) under the Inherited Styles category (found on the Style editor) and use them as foundation for a new custom style.
Remember that all of the properties will be inherited, but you can still determine which parameters you want to overwrite.
This is especially useful if you’re looking to keep a consistent design throughout your project, as it allows you to inherit all chosen text parameters without the cost of adding them one by one.
Did you create a style you’re really proud of? Go ahead and share it with us! 😀
