Text Attributes Palette

Question

Apologies if this is in Architect, but Oh! how I wish that I didn't have to venture up to the font menu for each change to a piece of text (font, then size, then alignment). The ability to "eyedrop" text attributes would also be welcome (or would even be an alternate).

Also, have the lines appearing above and below windows & doors on sections been hidden yet?

You can do quite a lot with the Custom Too/Attribute command. Format a block of text the way you want. Leave the Text tool selected. Invoke the command. Check the boxes as appropriate, hit OK and name the resulting script. Any such script show up in a script palette which you'll find in the Window menu. You can rename the palette via the Resources Palette , save it with your templates or import it. To use it, select the Text tool then double click the command in the palette.

That said, it would be whole lot easier if text attributes were part of class attributes. Then text classes could easily be preconfigured and selected from the pull down. Changing text to one of your style sets would be easy too using the Object Info Palette, something not possible with the script.

I have been able to use Quickeys to automate nine choices of text. I choose to select 6,7,8,9,10,12,14 pt size, and geneva, and timesbolditalic12 for my titles.
