Subject: Formatting text

When you create text, you choose the text style and set the alignment. The style deter­mines the font characteristics for the text. For single-line text, the alignment point determines how the text aligns with the text insertion point. For paragraph text, the alignment point determines the location of the attachment point in relation to the paragraph text boundary and the direction in which text flows within the boundary.       

You can also use the Express Tools > Text area for commands that scale text, justify text, enclose text in shapes, and more. All of these options are described in the online help.
