Article text format commands
Many of these commands will perform similarly on node title text, so first ensure that the Article pane has focus.
Highlight the block of text you wish to change with either the mouse or the cursor keys. Many of these commands toggle their function on⁄off. To reverse or remove formatting, see Reversing, removing and converting formatting.
Toolbuttons for these attributes are located on the Article and node formatting toolbar.

(Docked view)
Most of them are self-explanatory. Letting the mouse cursor hover over any of them will cause a tooltip to appear with the toolbutton's purpose and keyboard shortcut, if any. See Toolbars.

Changing default article text attributes
Default article text is always unformatted, therefore plain text. To set its default attributes, click Main menu ⁄ View ⁄ Options ⁄ Article.
To set the default article font (face), font size, font style and font color, click the Font... button.
These attributes will apply to the articles of all new child nodes created, which are always in plain text format. The default article font color is limited to 16 colors.
Similarly, if you remove all formatting from an article, converting it to plain text, the default article font settings you have chosen will apply.
Fixed pitch fonts (see below) are excluded from the list of font faces by default, though you can include them by ticking the "Allow fixed size fonts" box.
To set the article background color, click the Color... button. Be careful here as this change will be applied to all nodes in the file! Since highlighting is an attribute of formatted text, plain text by definition cannot be highlighted. See Font and highlight color.

  1. When applied to node caption font size, these commands increase⁄decrease it by 2 points.
  2. If you have a lot of fonts installed, it can be quite tedious dragging the scrollbar down to reach the one you want. Remember that you can press the first letter of the font's name to take you there faster. For example, if the window opens with verdana highlighted and you want Verdana (which is offscreen), press V to take you to the first font whose name starts with V. If this is not Verdana, press V successively until you reach it.
