Formatting toolbar

The Formatting toolbar provides many of the most common options for formatting selected text, such as font, font size, font weight, alignment, and color. The Font and Font Size boxes show the font and size of the current text including values that are set by a cascading style sheet (CSS).

In addition, you can use the Formatting toolbar to insert a horizontal line by clicking the arrow on Outside Borders Cc295311.21816433-8142-4826-b719-3df717455e56(en-us,Expression.30).png and selecting Horizontal Line Cc295311.00277a37-a468-4996-a633-50e34edfb921(en-us,Expression.30).png.

  • On the View menu, point to Toolbars, and then click Formatting.
