Engage 360: Modern Text Rendering

Article Last Updated

This article applies to:

Say hello to modern text! We completely rebuilt the text-rendering engine in Engage 360 with the latest technology so text flows beautifully with consistent spacing and readability on every device. You can be confident that what you see in the Engage editor is what learners will see in their browsers.

For example, where you might have previously seen unusual spacing between characters (kerning) in some browsers, modern text gives you perfect spacing in all browsers.

And bold and italicized fonts render consistently across browsers.

Install the latest update for Engage 360 to take advantage of modern text.

New Engage 360 Projects Use Modern Text

New projects automatically use modern text, so you don’t have to do any extra work. Just create your interaction and publish. It’s that easy!

Existing Engage 360 Projects Use Classic Text

Existing projects will continue to use classic text by default, but you can switch to modern text. Here’s how:

  1. Open your project and click Interaction Properties on the Engage ribbon.
  2. Select the Colors and Effects tab on the left side of the window.
  3. Choose Modern from the Text Quality drop-down list. This converts the entire project to modern text all at once.
  4. Click OK.

Because switching to modern text can make minor changes to character spacing, it’s possible that text could wrap differently. If you designed your interaction so text wraps at specific points, you may need to adjust the size of fonts or media after switching to modern text.

If classic text works fine for you in an existing project, there’s no need to switch to modern text. You can continue using classic text. If you do switch to modern text, we recommend reviewing each step in your interaction to make sure it looks the way you want.

And if you need to switch back to classic text, you can do that, too. Just click Interaction Properties, select the Colors and Effects tab, and choose Classic from the Text Quality drop-down list.
