How to Edit Text in Procreate

In this step-by-step tutorial, learn how to Edit Text in Procreate to create one-of-a-kind designs.

When adding text in Procreate, you have many options to choose from. In this tutorial, we will discuss what each of the text functions do and how to apply them.

Before getting started, make sure you've installed your font to Procreate.

Step 1 - Create a text and choose a font.

Here I will be using the word “text”and I will be using the font,Brellos. Type your text and choose a font. Make sure your text is highlighted so that it will automatically change as you change the demographics.

Step 2 - Change your style.

Choose a style if you want. A style can range from Regular Italic to Bold Italic. Each style changes the whole look of the text. Some fonts have several styles and some fonts have none.

Step 3 - Change the design of your text. 

Thedesign column is next. Here you can change the size of the text and several other aspects. Adjust the slider bar to automatically see the changes. To give you a better understanding of each function, I will create a text with the word “text” and show what each function does.

Design Functions

Function 3- Tracking

Tracking is very similar to kerning, however, it should be done after kerning has been set. Tracking adjusts the spacing between letters in a whole word at one time.
