Components in LessonUp allow you to add additional (interactive) features to your lesson. This greatly enhances the educational experience of students and allows you to appeal to the different needs of students. LessonUp has seven different components that can be placed in an existing slide.

The Text component allows you to place text boxes anywhere in your slide, regardless of the selected layout.

Click on '+ Component', and then on 'Text'. A text box will appear in the top left corner of the slide. The text in the text box can now be adjusted as you wish, for example: the text colour, font or size. All adjustments are independent of the default layout of the slide.

For more advanced options to customise the text box, click on the cog in the box, and then on the pencil.

It is possible to add a background colour to a textbox, to give it extra emphasis, and/or to change the size of the whole textbox. The latter is possible via the frame around the textbox.

By clicking on the 'Extras' tab three options appear: determining the margins of the text within a textbox, using shadows, and the possibility of vertical centring.
