A Layer can be added as a “Placeholder”, which is simply a Layer who’s content hasn’t been defined yet.

Or a Layer can be added as a “Quick Style”, which allows you to choose a predefined style that can be edited further after adding it to the editing stage.

To edit or set a Layer’s content, select the Layer on the editing stage and then view its “Content” section

Layers can also be selected from inside the Timeline Editor

Edit Text/Buttons

1. Text Content

2. Line Break Behavior
Decide how text should wrap/break. 

Only Manual
The text will have a “white-space: nowrap” applied and only wrap/break lines where a “<br>” tag is found. 

Width Based 
Choose this option if your Layer has a defined pixel width, set in the Layer Settings.

Content Based 
Choose this option if your Layer has an “auto” width, set in the Layer Settings.

Content & Width Based 
Text will wrap “width based” first, and then wrap “content based” if the text bleeds off the screen.
