From the "Add a text box" list.
"Choose View > Show/Hide > Toolbar Items > Properties Bar, and set the color, alignment, and font attributes for the text."
is there a way to keep the property box open at all times or do i have to go to Show every time i need to use it. Also, within the text box, if I hit enter to provide a space between lines as soon as I close out of editing the spaces all go away. Both of these things we available in the last version of adobe i was using and can't understand why you would take things away from the program that were previously available.
