Edit Text with the Properties Palette



The Properties Palette is a useful tool for changing the properties of any symbol, including text.


Be sure the application is in Select Mode, then select the text you want to edit.


You can select several different text symbols and change all of their properties at once.


Note: If you are finding that you need to move all of the text higher to clear some notes, consider adjusting the Symbol Spacing Above setting for the system instead of adjusting their position.
