Formatting options are available while you are typing, and whenever the text block is selected. You can choose the text, text block and border color and opacity, change font size, highlight etc. Text boxes have a limit of 2000 symbols.

You can quickly apply a particular style to all shapes or text boxes on the board. To quickly copy and apply formatting, use the shortcuts Ctrl/Cmd + Alt + C and Ctrl/Cmd + Alt + V or buttons in the context menu.
Bulleted and numbered lists
Bulleted and numbered lists help break up large blocks of text easier to grasp and make key information stand out. To start a bulleted or numbered list, type a dash or a number and press the spacebar. You are able to convert any text that you entered into a bulleted or numbered list by using the List type tool in the menu above:
