Specifying text formats for fields
In Layout mode, you can specify a set of text attributes for each field object. All the characters in a given field object (including all of its repetitions if it refers to a repeating field) share the same font, size, style, color, line spacing, tab, and paragraph settings. But no attributes are shared between different field objects. For example, you can insert more than one field object that displays data from the same field, and each field object can have different text attributes.
Note  You can also format characters in text fields in Browse mode (for example, italicize or underline a word for emphasis). Unlike text formatting specified in Layout mode, this formatting is stored with the data, and you see it in any layout that displays that field. For more information, see Formatting text.
To specify text formats for fields:
For more information, see Selecting objects.
Click Inspector Inspector button in the layout bar, then click Appearance.
Use the Text area to format the style, size, font, or color of the text or make text highlighted, bold, italic, or underlined. Use the Paragraph area to set paragraph alignment, indenting, and line spacing for fields. For more information, see Specifying paragraph attributes and tab settings.
Use the formatting bar (click Formatting Formatting bar button in the layout bar, or choose View menu > Formatting Bar) or the shortcut menu for quick access to many text attributes. For more information, see Using the status toolbar and Using shortcut menus.
