When you click on that button, more options show up. Like the “ADD TEXT” Button.
Then you can start typing text and changing it by the options on the top window bar. So change it the way you want your business card to look.
- Check your spacing:
Vistacreate has a guideline that will show up when you are moving text/design elements. Also when you open up a new template there will be a red frame around the artboard, that will help with spacing.
