How can you create a text input box and access the value?
You can insert a Rectangle Div element, double-click to edit its text, select Edit InnerHTML in the floating text editing toolbar, and paste the following HTML script into the Edit InnerHTML window:
<input id="inputId" style="width: 100%; height: 100%;" type="text">
You can edit the sample script to change the text input id and style as desired.
Perfect! Thank you for the clear explanation.

By accident I disabled(hide) the ‘Floating Text FormatToolbar’ by clicking on the most left icon/button. The User Manual v2.0 pages 9, 30, 48, 91, 138, 139, 159, and 161 does not provide sufficient information to assign a shortcut key or where to enable the toolbar again. It seems the ‘Properties - General - Text’ panel is missing some of the buttons from the floating toolbar.
The only workaround so far it seems is to
- close Saola Animate,
- start it again,
- open the project,
- and then it will be showing again.
Do you perhaps know of a faster and less distracting way to show the floating toolbar again?
You can show the floating toolbar again by right-clicking the editing text and select Floating Text Format Toolbar in the popup menu.
We’ll update the manual in the next release.
