As the name suggests, the Title Object is specific for creating titles to insert in both the template's header and in the page content. Unlike the Text Object, the Title Object doesn't open an actual text editor, but it does provide all the features necessary for writing a short text, formatting it and specifying some style settings.

The main advantage of the Title Object is that it simplifies work on the header tags (from <h1> to <h6>), thus improving the page structure and, consequently, the level of search engine optimization.

When you add an Title Object you can specify the following Properties:

Content: to enter or paste the text contents in this field.
Font Type: to define the font, style and size of the text.
Text Color / Background Color: to define the color of the text and its background.
Alignment: to align the text to the Left, Center or Right.

You can give titles a Style which you define with the following parameters:

Style: this defines the type of shadow, if you want one.
Color: this defines the color of the shadow.
Diffusion: this defines the shadow's diffusion.
Offset X / Offset Y:  these define the vertical and/or horizontal distance of the shadow from the title. A positive value moves the shadow down or to the right, whereas a negative value moves the shadow up or to the left.

It is also possible to apply an Effect to a title, and these are the possible parameters you can set:

Effect: this defines the type of effect to apply.
Angle / Angle X / Angle Y: these give the rotation direction and angle and/or distortion to apply to the title.

Finally, you can complete the title with the following options:

Heading Tag: this indicates whether the title is to be added in the page's HTML code as a heading and at which level.

In the HTML language, page headings (or titles) are inserted with the tags from <h1></h1> to <h6></h6>. The <h1> tag is used for the highest heading level and the other tags, <h2>, <h3> ... <h6>, are used in succession for lower levels, subsections, and so on. Care must be taken to respect the level order and not jump levels. For more information on working with heading tags, see How to work with the Title Object.

Link: this adds a link to the title. You can define the link in the Link that opens.
