- Click the Font Style drop-down arrow and choose a font
- Click the Font Size drop-down arrow and choose a size
- Click the Font Color drop-down arrow and pick a color
- Double-Click any word to select the word.
- Triple-Click the word to select a paragraph.
- CTRL A will select the entire document
(or a triple click in the left margin)
- Pay attention to the mini-bar when it appears. It is useful and close to your work area.
- If the font style and/or size box are blank, it is because your selection contains two or more styles and it is confused so it appears blank. Simply choose a font style or size and it will be fine.
