If you see an alert (red triangle) while working on a card

If you see a red triangle with an exclamation point while working on a card, there’s text that doesn’t fit in the available space, either because the font is too large or the text uses too many characters.

To fix an alert, do one of the following:

  • Reduce the space the text takes by changing the text’s font, typeface, or size.

  • Edit the text so that it uses fewer words.
