    When adding text to a photo my text does not show in the “type text here” field therefore I am unable to add any text at all. This is not an issue with my computer as I am able to use my keyboard and have visible text in all other sites and applications. I am also able to type in this forum and type in my login information. How do I fix this so that I am able to add text to the photo I am editing?

    Hi Breanna,

    Thanks for reaching out to us! You should be able to type into the Type Text Here box by first clicking it, then typing. Then by clicking ADD it should add the text to your image. Does that work?

      That is the area that I am referring to. It does not work. When clicking in that area the cursor shows but my text does not.

      Thanks for getting back to us. That’s really strange.

      Is it correct that you’re using Chrome on Windows 10? Also do any of the following work:

      – Typing into other fields, such as the File Name field when saving or the Dimensions fields when resizing or creating a Blank Canvas?
      – Another web browser?
      – Exiting Chrome completely and relaunching it?

      Based on your answers we’ll investigate further and try to resolve it ASAP. Right now it’s working fine from here on Windows 10 Chrome.

    How do you add color to text? White doesn’t show on frame!

      Hi Denita,

      Thanks for reaching out to us! After you add Text to your photo (or when you click on a piece of existing Text), a Text Properties dialog appears. At the top of this dialog is a color selection rectangle where you can choose the Text’s color.

      Let us know if you have any other questions!

      Thanks! I found out as soon as I added the text to my photo. I hadn’t
      used Ribbet in a long time, so I had forgot.

    This happens from time to time and it drives me nuts! — the letters won’t all fit in the text box for some reason. If I try to make it smaller text, it stays the same, only smaller. If I try to stretch the text box, it just makes the whole thing bigger and the letters on the ends still don’t show. SO aggravating!

      Hi Mary,

      Thanks for reaching out to us!

      This will be related to the specific font being used. Which font is causing this issue in this case? One thing that can help is adding spaces before/after your text, or Enter keys.

      Thank you! That makes sense. I’ll try that next time. I changed fonts and it worked with my second choice. My first choice, and one of my favorites, is FELIX TILTING. Thank you so much for your help. I appreciate it!

      That’s a pleasure! One other thing: It could also be the version of the font you install. I downloaded FELIX TILTING from here and it worked fine for me across a number of different letter combinations. It’s possible though that there are some specific combinations of words that would cause the issue on this version of the font as well.

    How do I add a white outline to my text so it stands out on top of an image?

      Hi Ian,

      Thanks for reaching out to us! In the current desktop/web version of Ribbet, this isn’t possible, however it is currently possible on our mobile app (2nd item on the Text toolbar that shows after you add some text).

      In our new version of Ribbet for web, which we’re working on, this option is included. If you’re interested in becoming a beta tester of this, you can sign up to become an early, beta tester here.

      One thing some Ribbet for web users currently do is add a rectangle sticker behind their text (from the Stickers > Geometric group). This can be faded to create quite a nice effect.

      Or, let us know if you have any questions.

      Regards – The Ribbet Team
