Show/Hide Text Palette

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

This Display menu command shows or hides the Text Palette. The Text Palette allows you to change the font, font size, and style for the label or text of each selected object.

If the palette is not currently showing, the command is Show Text Palette; if the palette is currently showing, the command is Hide Text Palette.

The keyboard shortcut for Show/Hide Text Palette is Shift+Ctrl+T (Windows) or Shift-T (Mac).

Use the Text panel of the Preferences dialog box to determine whether or not the Text Palette appears automatically when you create or edit a caption.

You can use Display | Text to change the size and font of labels and text objects, but the Text Palette is usually more convenient.
