In Designer Options you can edit the settings of the texts. This is done by adjusting the settings on the following screen. You find it in TipTicker if you follow this menu path:

Options ==> Design Options ==> select tab "Edit Texts"

The areas of interest are marked with a referencing number in a red dot. All following numberings refer to these dots. Where needed a special chaper describes the setting in detail.

Texts can be added to images. Within these texts you can use several replacement variables or macros. These variables become very handy if you want to display e.g. a tippers name. It is also possible to show a counter value or how often a goal has been reached. With text is is easy to celebrate special events in detail.

These texts are able to put together constant text with many aspects of the incoming tips. E.g. it is possible to include the user name of a tipping guest.
