Description majortombelgium 2007-10-09 11:34:38 UTC
When making a drawing and adding a text frame with only text, you can not change the size or font of the text easily. First you have to dubbelclick on the text frame, and then you can select what size, font, etc. it should use by right clicking anywhere in the text. Why do you need to dubbelclick first, just add another submenu(e.g. font properties) where you can change the font of all the text in the textframe at once. I think it is a natural reaction to press enter when you typed something to sort of "confirm" what you typed in the textframe. And it's only then I start worrying about the layout, but I pressed enter already, so I need to get back into edit mode to make the layout like I want it. Thanks and keep up the good work! best regards, Tom,

When I open the context menu of a text box I get the entry 'Character...' in the context menu. I think this is what you mean.

I close the issue as works for me.

Please reopen the issue if this is not what you mean.

yes, indeed you can use the character entry, but this is a separate dialog, not a submenu like when you enter edit mode in the textframe and rightclick on the text. It would be more consistent I think to also have a submenu there(with font,style,size,alignment), instead of only the 'character' entry.

It's an enhancement.
