Shows the formatting attributes for the shape's text, such as font, color, text style, case, position relative to the baseline, and point size.

Each character style in a shape has a corresponding row in the Character section as viewed in the ShapeSheet window. The name of the row represents the number of characters the character style applies to.

You can set text formats in the Text dialog box (click the dialog box launcher in the Font group on the Home tab), by applying a text style, or by making an entry in a Character section cell.
