Text Section of the Properties Panel
There are two sections to the properties panel. You have the Text Section and then you have the Link Section. We will go over the text section first. The image to your left shows the text section.
Format – The format box allows you to quickly change titles, headers, and more. Type some text on your document. Highlight the text and drop the format box down and select a format. See how the text changed.
Font – This is the box that you drop down to select the font style that you want to apply to the text. If you do not see the font style that you want to use. Click the Edit Font List link in the bottom of the drop down box. When the box opens, click the font that you want to add in the Available Fonts window. Then click the arrow pointing to the left. That will add the font. Click OK to close the box.
Style – If you have created a CSS Style to use on text or links, you can highlight the text and drop the style box down. In the style box you will see the CSS Style that you created. Clicking the name of the style will apply the style to the text.
Size – This is the size of your text. Highlight the text, drop the box down, and select the size of your choice.
Color Box – You can click the color box and select the color that you want to use or you can enter the hex code for the color in the field beside the color box. Either way you want to do it is fine.
Bold and Italic Icons – You will see the B icon and the I icon. This is how you change the text to bold and italic. Highlight the text and click one of the icons to apply it.
Alignment Icons – The alignment icons allow you to align the text to the left, right, center, or justify it. You can highlight the text and then click the icon of your choice.
List Icons – You can create a bullet list or a number list using these icons. Type a list, highlight the list and click one of the icons.
