    With Oblytile version .9 and Paint Shop.
    Open your favorite Paint program to create an image 200 x 200 or so... (minimum - it could be larger)

    Add tile color to the background with your paint program or create an image that has whatever background color... Add text to the 200 x 200 square. Save to your preferred folder.

    Open Oblytile, (learn the features of Oblytile), choose file, folder, or website.
    Add the created tile from Paint (Shop Pro) or whatever as an Oblytile tile image.

    Click on create tile.

    I noticed in 8.1 you can name groups of tiles.

    I keep hearing this sported as a "new feature." Isn't it the same as zooming out in plain 8 (using the minus (-) key at the bottom right) and right clicking on a group?

    The minus key only brings up the app search window.

    I'm fairly certain mine just zooms out. Maybe I'm thinking of a different button. All I know is I can name app groups in vanilla 8.
