Text alignment To align the guidelines with text on the template, first add text in your chosen font and re-size with your Mouse wheel.
As you adjust the lines with the sliders, the vertical spaces expand or contract from the top down, so start at the top and work down.
Left click text and drag to position the top of the text to the top line in the first row on the template.
Next drag the Ascender slider to align the top of the Body of the text.
Then drag the Base Height line to align with the base of the body of the text, then the Descender to align with the bottom of the text.
If you need extra lines, drag them from the bottom up to where you want them. Extra lines are colored blue.

Adjust from pre written paper You can also adjust the guidelines to suit text already hand written or printed on paper.
Hold the written sheet of paper over the screen, align the top of the text to the top guide line, and adjust as above.
If your screen is not 100% scale, adjust the Scale +- slider until the displayed Row Height matches the actual row height on paper.
