Newbie Silly Question
« on: October 18, 2016, 12:09:44 pm »
Apologies for ridiculous question but googleing and reading wiki has not helped - changing font size. I am running 1.4.6 and have a single word in a text box.  Via right click I launch the edit text  box - at this point I highlight the text, change the font style, click on the green tick/save, the edit text window closes and the font style has changed.  With the same procedure I can change the colour of the font.  However, when I highlight the text in the Edit Text window and click on the font size arrow the highlight disappears over the text.  I cannot change the font size.  Any help appreciated.

don't use the edit box. just double click on the text frame to edi the text.

and open the "properties" palette through the "window" menu... there is a very useful text tab in there :-)
