Text on a map often serves the role of symbol, indicating important features and helping to distinguish features from each other. Like features should share the same text style. For example, it is traditional to represent natural features on a map with serif fonts and cultural features with sans-serif fonts.
Ortelius comes loaded with Text styles designed to work together for mapping. Text for roads, rivers, oceans and more are included.
Adding Text Style
Much like other styles, styles for text objects can be created and saved in the Symbols Library for repeated use. Open the Style Inspector and choose "New Text Style" from the drop-down Action Menu (looks like a gear).
From the Style Inspector, click the "A" button to open the Font panel and set the font family, typeface, and size. Name your new font style and add it to the Library, assigning it to a category as appropriate.
