-The first step in creating a 3D Text Styles product is to have the styles ready to be packaged inside the product. Styles can be saved to disk by choosing the **Save All Format and Appearance Attributes** command under the 3D Text Style popup menu in Motion:+The first obvious ​step in creating a 3D Text Styles product ​with FxFactory ​is to have these styles ready to be imported. Styles can be saved to disk by choosing the **Save All Format and Appearance Attributes** command under the 3D Text Style popup menu in Motion:
  
 {{ :​fxtextstyles:​motion-save-text-style.jpg?​nolink |}} {{ :​fxtextstyles:​motion-save-text-style.jpg?​nolink |}}
  
-When you save a text style through that command, Motion ​saves a few files to a special location on disk((Please note that Motion may append an newline character to the filename. This can lead to confusion when the files are browsed in the Finder, as the filename may appear truncated.)). ​+When saving ​a text style through that command, Motion ​writes ​a few files to a special location on disk((Please note that Motion may append an newline character to the filename.

-The length of the popup menu quickly ​becomes ​impractical ​when many custom styles are created by the user. To avoid this problem, developers can group all 3D text styles ​in their own category.

To avoid this problem, developers can group text styles ​under a submenu of their choice. FxFactory will do this for you automatically,​ when a new 3D Text Styles product is created.
