Twelve Days of Christmas Day Three Key Texts

The 12 Days of Christmas: The Third Day – 3 Key Texts

“On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me, 3 key texts, 2 dashboard reports and one project in XaitPorter”  

We can take the traditional route of giving three French hens or – as you might have started to guess – we don’t want more birds! I’d rather have three key texts. Perhaps you might be wondering, “what exactly is key text?”

In the context of document production, Key Text refers to text that is used to highlight important information in a document. The key text will typically be larger, highlighted or bold text and located in the left or right margin (separated from the body text). It serves as a visual representation to focus the reader’s attention on a critical piece of information that might get lost within a large body paragraph.

So why is this an important feature when creating business-critical documents? Because of a reader’s behavior when reviewing a document: over 90% will read the key text first when they focus on a page. We have found the use and impact of key text to be so important that we have built easy-to-use functionality so you can add key texts directly in XaitPorter.

With typical document production software, adding key text can be an absolute nightmare. And that’s not considering the difficulty of using key text and images together – all of which have to be re-sized and scaled to fit into the new adjusted column space. We have seen and heard from our clients just how difficult adding key text can be for them, so we wanted to ensure that XaitPorter made the process easier and quicker.

Have you ever been frustrated by formatting issues when working with key text and images? That’s the reason why our Day 3 gift to you is, in fact, the gift of time.
