Once you've created your card, click on the three dots in the bottom right hand corner of the card and choose Edit card frontYou'll then see a series of options to optimise the presentation of your card.

You can choose to make it image only, text only, image and text and, by clicking on the arrow below the image, can choose whether you'd like a deep or shallow image.

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 pencil icon in the top right hand corner of the card. You'll see a number of editing options.

Click plus or minus to zoom in or out on your image; drag your image to re-position it; or choose the delete icon to remove the image and choose a new one.

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. 

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.

If you've shared a box so other people in your team or group can add to or edit cards, you may occasionally see someone's face next to the Edit button on the back of a card. This is a simple way of showing that the card when someone else has already opened it your work will not be saved. Choose Cancel and try again after the other person has finished editing the card. 

The back of the card includes other helpful information such as where it's linked to, when it was created and who can see it.
