            // applies formatting to selected text

            var myDoc = app.activeDocument;
            var myText = app.selection[0];
            with (myText) {
                appliedFont = app.fonts.item("Myriad Pro\tBold Italic");
                fillColor = myDoc.swatches.item("C=15 M=100 Y=100 K=0");
                underline = true;
            }
