Text style is hit or miss for me

Roger,

The advantage of the array notation for textStyle is that you can explicitly set each style for a given run of text.

The disadvantage of the array notation for textStyle is that you have to explicitly un-set each style for a given run of text.  ;)

  set the textStyle[“bold”] of the selectedChunk to false

But as you note, if you want to clear out *all* style formatting, the old, non-array method of setting the textStyle to plain works great. Nuke those styles!

That worked perfectly for all but plain.  In my plain button, I had to
write it as:  set the textStyle of the selectedChunk to "plain".

Thank you, Mark!

How do you guys do formatting buttons?


Try

  set the textStyle["bold"] of the selectedChunk to true
  set the textStyle["italic"] of the selectedChunk to true

Warmest Regards,

Mark.
