Data Discovery: Text Ribbon

The Text tab provides end users with the key functions most often used to add, edit and format text (and dynamic text) into analytic views.

The Text Tab becomes active when a Text Box component is present in the report canvas.


Provides standard clipboard functions to copy/cut/paste text.


Provides standard text formatting such as font style, bold, italic, color, size, etc.


Provides standard paragraph formatting such as alignment, bulleted lists, numbered lists, etc..

NOTE: For right-to-left languages such as Hebrew and Arabic, the text box provides right-to-left support. Use the Right-to-Left command in the Data Discovery: Report Tab to change the text direction.


Provides standard style formats including Header 1, Heading 2, Heading 3, Heading 4 and Normal. These styles inherit their attributes from the current Report Theme.
