• Reference Guide


This menu is available only when a formatted string or text is being edited (see the line editor and rich text editor). All items in this menu open or close a window that is used to edit the properties of objects that occur in the text. These windows are not “modal dialogs”, that must be closed before you can continue working with the text. On the contrary, you can leave the applicable window open while you continue editing the text, and you will always see there the properties of the particular part of the text that you are currently editing. If the relevant object (e.g. a table or a picture) is not being edited, its format window appears empty, and only its title is preserved. The contents of the window reappear as soon as the cursor moves over the applicable object.
