I'd been using an application called Comic Life to make some presentations.  There are some nice aspects of the app, but it's a bit tedious -  What I need to do is create text containers that will have stroked outlines as well as fill.  I know one can make a text frame out of shapes but I can't seem to apply a stroke (or see one) after a conversion.  What am I missing here?

As far as I’m aware, it isn’t possible apply a stroke to a text frame. I think you just have to duplicate the shape, apply a stroke to the original copy and then convert the duplicate to a text frame. Since the duplicate will be positioned directly on top of the stroked shape, you’ll get the visual effect that you want.

I was afraid of that.  I know it can be done however - I've attached a screencast.  I wonder if a set of curves could be 'attached' to the text box outline and move along with the changes....    I'm never savvy enough it seems to get what I want.

Is it possible to set up the asset/group so it formats text that's pasted into it?


For instance, I've a script already typed up and it would be very useful to copy and paste snippets where needed through the document.
