Changing Text with a Text Editor

You can edit text using a third-party text editor by using the same format codes you used to create the original text. To avoid losing format information when you make changes to the text, use the same text editor you used to create the text.

  1. From the Modify menu, choose Text.
  2. Select the multiline text you want to edit.
