It's been a few weeks since I have added or edited any presentations.  I am trying to create on this morning, but I am not able to add a text item to a playlist on the new presentation.  I went into other presentations I have, and am able to edit existing text items, but not able to add a new placeholder and add text to any of those either.

Hi Brad,

The Text Item has been replaced with the Text Widget and is now located in the Content option, rather than have it be a standalone selection from the Add menu.

Thanks.

Is there any kind of documentation on how to use it?

The documentation for the Text Widget hasn't been implemented yet, but the functionality isn't drastically different compared to the old Text Item.

The biggest difference you may see is that the Text Widget now has the ability to scroll the text within the Placeholder (as long as the text extends beyond the height of the Placeholder).

Thanks.

Does the text widget work as it was intended to?  The text won't show up, until you save, publish and preview the presentation.  Also, there are lots of additional fonts to choose from, but many of them don't seem to display properly.
