Lightroom 5 and the Spine

What’s the best way to place text onto the spine of a Large Square book in LR 5? I see that I can enter text directly but there’s no way to format it.

Thanks.

Ron

Depending on the template you are using, ou might find that this works better in Lightroom 5.2RC than 5.0.

I’m having trouble with this too, using LR 5.4, hardcover image wrap. Can text be added to the spine via LR? If so, how do you enter the text? I’m able to click on the yellow box on the spine, but I don’t see where I can type the text.

I can add text to the front cover using “page text,” but don’t see where to enter spine text.

Ah, figured it out…not sure what I was doing wrong but now the cursor has come up and I can type on the spine.
