Contents Tool Factory Workshop Deluxe Coloring Text and Lines
Grade: K-12
Required products: Tool Factory Word Processor V2
Instructions
Text and lines can become any color. Make sure there is some text in your project before changing the color.

CHANGING FONT AND LINE COLOR
1) Double click a line of text (or a drawn line). It gets a red box around it.
2) Click the EFFECTS icon in the tool bar. It looks like a magic wand (right mouse clicking on the hi-lighted text box also brings up the Effects window).
3) Click the “Color” tab at the top of the effects window.
4) Pick a new color.
5) Select APPLY.
6) Click the “X” to close the Effects window.

*TIP* Once the Effects window is opened it’s possible to change the color on many different text boxes or lines in sequence. Double click each one, change the color and apply. Close the Effects window after all the items have been colored.
