Step 6: Setting Text Attributes

The text you typed is 12 point sans serif (AmigaOS: Triumvirate, Linux:, Windows: Arial, Macintosh: Helvetica); this is PageStream's default font and size. You will change the text to Bold 24 point now.

1. Choose Select All from the Edit menu.

The text in the text object will be selected.

2. Change the font.

Press and hold the mouse button on the Font pop-up in the Edit palette. (If the Font pop-up is not visible, click on the C button at the far left of the Edit palette to switch to Character view.) Scroll down the list until you find sans serif-Bold. Release the mouse button when it is highlighted in the pop-up list. The selected text will be changed to sans serif-Bold. (AmigaOS: Triumvirate-Bold, Linux:, Windows: Arial-Bold, Macintosh: Helvetica-Bold)

NoteYou can also change the font and type style with the Font and Size menu items in the Type menu. It is usually faster to use the Edit palette to change text attributes.

3. Change the size.

Press and hold the mouse button on the Size pop-up in the Edit palette. Scroll until you find 24 point. Release the mouse button. The selected text will be changed to 24 point.

Click the mouse anywhere in the text object to deselect the text when you are done.
