Editing the front and back of cards

If you're using the Shooglebox mobile app click here

Because everything you add into Shooglebox is represented by a card – whether it's an image, a video, music, a quotes, notes, document or web link – there a number of ways you can format your cards so they stand out.

Once you've created your card, click on the three dots in the bottom right hand corner of the card and choose Edit card front. You'll then see a series of options to optimise the presentation of your card including five layout options based on whether you want to add an image – or just keep it as text.

Text on the front of a card is automatically sized to fit the available space. You can make your text bold, italic or underlined and, if you select the auto-fit toggle, you can choose the size you'd like your text to be.

​You can also re-size or choose a different image for the front of your card. Click on the edit option in the top right hand corner of the card. You'll see a number of editing options. Choose crop image to zoom in or out, rotate, or reposition your image.

Capturing extra detail on the back of a card

​Every card you create on Shooglebox has space on the back to capture additional details.

The back of a card gives you more space to add extra information, images and links while keeping the front of the card simple so that it stands out.

​​Select the edit button to add more detail to the back of the card. You'll see this editor toolbar. Use it to change the text layout, size and appearance – make text bold, italic, underlined and select the text icon after highlighting a block of text to change its colour.

​If you've created a card with an image, video, audio file, document or web link, you'll see an embedded version of that asset on the back of the card. You can choose whether to show or hide this asset using the button below.

​You can add additional images to the back of the card by clicking the picture icon in the toolbar.

​And if you highlight a block of text and then click on the link icon you can turn that text into a web link.

​You can change the layout style to a heading, body text, or a bulleted list – and choose whether you'd like it to be centred, left aligned, right aligned or justified.

​If you want a highlight a block of text so that a particular quote or point stands out simply mouse over the block of text you want to edit, click on the text highlighter button and choose the colour you'd like to use.

​Select the Tx icon to remove any formatting – particularly useful when pasting content from Word documents or other sources. Just highlight the text you want to remove formatting from and press the Tx button.
