How To Add Text, Images, & Icons To My Storyboard

Not ALL your visuals need to be dynamic; maybe you need to make a note within your story board, summarize another visual for team members to note or maybe you just want to add an image to your storyboard to make it unique. Regardless of your reason, lets walk you through it!

  1. Start at opening a storyboard up in edit mode. Look to the left at the tools you have available to you in the vertical tool bar. If you hover over the newspaper icon, you will see “add text and graphics.” Click on this to see the available static visuals
  2. You will then see four visual types you can add to your storyboard: text content, section heading, board icon, and web content. We will break these four visuals down to you in the following section.
  3. Drag and drop the visual you wish to use onto your storyboard!
    **Note that these visuals are resizable and repositionable the same as any other visual. To learn more, click here!
  4. Make sure to save your changes by hitting the corresponding button in the upper right corner!

That’s it! You successfully have added you static visual. As a sign of success, when you close and reopen your storyboard, you will see the static visuals right where you left them.

The Four Static Visuals

1.) Text Content

2.) Section Heading

The text content lets you write out text. To do so, place down the visual and click on it. A new window titled “Edit Content” Will appear. You will then see a text box beneath that lets you enter text. This is where you enter your content! You also have the ability to format your text the way you see fit. There are available reformatting tools to the top of the text box including adding images, spacing, alignment, and so much more! To learn more about customizing your text, click here! The Section Heading acts as a good divider within your storyboard. To add a section head, simply click and drag from the menu onto your storyboard. By clicking inside the visual, you are able to write out what you want the Section Header to say. Think of it as being able to add subsections into your storyboard – a great organizational tool! A practical use for this visual is placing related visuals side by side under the subsection header. For example: all cost-related visuals will go under a subsection titled something like “Cost Effects.”

3.) Board Icon

4.) Web Content

A board icon is a small visual that you can add (useful next to section headers). Click and drag the visual to where you see fit. When you click on the visual, you will be directed to a window with many of our visuals. It may look intimidating but don’t worry! Optix offers a search bar in this window to filter out icons for what you are looking for. This way you are not endlessly scrolling looking for an icon. Chose the icon you want and then its set in your visual!
