Moving the tail
Once the balloon text is appropriately sized and positioned you'll want to position the tail so that balloon is
associated with the right person. Mouse over the bubble and you'll see a marker handle show up that indicates
the place to click. Click on this handle and drag the tail into place.
Moving a balloon and it's tail/s
A balloon is normally achored by it's tail in a Panel. If you want to move the balloon and it's tail/s in a
single move, then click and drag the 'move handle' which appears whener you move over a balloon.
Adding additional balloons
Sometimes you have more text than can comfortably fit in one balloon and need for the text to span multiple
balloons. Perhaps the character is pausing for thought before continuing speaking or you need to make a thought
fit a particular space. Comic Life lets you do this by adding additional balloons to the speech or thought.
Add an additional balloon
To add another balloon to an existing balloon simply drag the extension balloon from the well and drop it on a
balloon that needs extending. The new balloon is automatically connected to the existing balloon and displayed as
the same type as the original balloon.
This balloon can be manipulated in the same manner as described above. Note how the balloon smoothly
connects to the previous balloon. If the two overlap their outlines are joined cleanly. If they are separate a
connecting tail is drawn between automatically maintaining the visual connection for you.
