Text can be converted into a shape, enabling you to customize it like other shapes on a spread. With your text as a shape, you can apply a border, a solid or gradient fill, or place an image directly into the text.
Cut out backgrounds are created in Online Design by using clipping paths. The tools are located in the Page Editor’s Edit Object window.
