There are seven variations on titles which appear in slightly different ways depending on the placement of the anchor bars (or lack there of). The anchor bar is the position from which the 'blackboard' from which the title appears with the title in place.
The lone exception is the one title without an anchor bar which grows and shrinks from the center by default with the title rising from the bottom. All titles begin with the same size font, a black background color and an orange anchor bar.
In addition to the standard text formatting, you can customize the format of the anchor bar and background using the Title object control panel (Figure 2 and Table 1).
Table 1: The Title object control panel options as pictured in Figure 1.
