2.1 Text Tile

The "Text" tile is the default tile type and lets you create tiles consisting of:

Text only:

You can enter plain text and also include HTML tags as needed.
The second tile to the right illustrates the available default font sizes and uses the below setting:

Content:<h1>Welcome to our Project Homepage</h1><h2>Welcome to our Project Homepage</h2><h3>Welcome to our Project Homepage</h3>This is regular body text
Text Tile containing static text Text Tile using HTML formatting tags

Text linked to a target page, a document or a picture:

The first tile to the right is linked to a SharePoint document library and thus automatically displays the corresponding icon.
Embed the "[count]" placeholder in the "Content" setting to display the number of items in the tile.
Embed the "[updated]" placeholder to display the "last updated" date.
The 5th tile links to the picture entered into the "URL" setting and typically opens it in a dialog window.
