If there's a poem or quote that you really like, take advantage of your computer's clipboard. The import doesn't always work, but for most programs it does.
You can copy and paste directly from a webpage. If you have to type it on your own, use a text editor that has spell check. You don't have to select the font at that time, you can change that once you import it into your layout. The font may look different once you paste it. Selecting it later sometimes saves time. I have found once in a while some fonts don't import into the scrapbook program.
