StockChartsACP Text Annotation Tools

StockChartsACP Text Annotation Tools

StockChartsACP's text annotation tools allow you to add descriptions and labels to your charts. Each of the Text Tools available in StockChartsACP is listed and described below in more detail. These tools can be found by clicking on the Annotations (pencil and ruler) icon in the Chart Design menu and then looking for the Text Tools section.

Notes

The Note tool lets you add text without any background to your chart. After Selecting the Note tool, click on your chart in the general area where you want your note to be. Enter your desired text in the box that appears, then click the Save button next to your text. Once the text has been saved, click and drag the text note to reposition it on the chart. Use the properties buttons at the top of the Annotations panel to change the font color, opacity, font size, and font style (bold or italic).

Notes:

  • To edit the text after saving, click on the note, then press CTRL+E (CMD+E on a Mac) to enter edit mode. Make the desired changes and then click the Save button next to the text.
  • The note annotation will be automatically resized as you change the amount of text, the font size, etc. If you want the annotation to be narrower but tall enough to contain more than one line of text, use carriage returns at appropriate places in the text.

Callout Boxes

The Callout Box tool allows you to add white “text bubbles” on your chart. Once created, you can add a “callout point” to the bubble that connects the bubble visually to specific locations on your chart.

After selecting the Callout tool, click on your chart in the general area where you want your Callout Box to be. Enter your desired text in the box that appears, then click the Save button next to your text. Once the text has been saved, click and drag the callout box to reposition it on the chart. To add a callout point, click and drag the small circle (“handle”) in the middle of the callout box to the location you want to point to. Use the properties buttons at the top of the Annotations panel to change the font color, opacity, font size, and font style (bold or italic).

Notes:

  • To edit the text after saving, click on the callout box, then press CTRL+E (CMD+E on a Mac) to enter edit mode. Make the desired changes and then click the Save button next to the text.
  • The callout box will be automatically resized as you change the amount of text, the font size, etc. If you want the annotation to be narrower but tall enough to contain more than one line of text, use carriages returns at appropriate places in the text.
  • To remove a callout point, simply hide it by clicking the handle on the callout point and dragging it back inside the callout box.
