Struggling to edit label and labelgroup text in Interface Designer

8 - Asteroid

Hi there wonderful Alteryx community! For reasons utterly unknown to me, I'm really struggling to edit label and labelgroup text in the interface designer. I can add labels and labelgroups, move them around...just not edit the text. Is there a trick to it? Is there a user setting I might need to adjust? Something else?

I couple of times I have got it to work but usually there's been a delay and I've not understood what's made it shift to edit mode. I haven't been able to find any info on this, so have no idea if it's affecting others.


Any help HUGELY appreciated!!

Hi @HuwHallam 


Do you mean labels for your Interface Tools?


You change that directly in the tool configuration.





Or if it's the custom labels you click on them and the configuration box appears behind them:

Hi Thableaus, thanks for your response!


It's the latter: the custom labels. I just can't get the configuration box to appear. I don't know if I've done something to my settings that can be changed...but clicking, double-clicking, right-clicking on the label - nothing gets me to a place where I can edit it. Is there anyway to access the configuration box through a shortcut key or menu?

Hi again - I've found the answer. In the view menu I had 'configuration' unchecked. I've checked it and now, surprise surprise, the configuration box opens and I can edit. Hooray!
