Text sub-menu

  • Left Align. Align the current paragraph to the left.
  • Center. Centre align the current paragraph.
  • Justify. Justify align the current paragraph.
  • Right Align. Align the current paragraph to the right.
  • Writing Direction. Opens the Writing Direction sub-menu.
  • Smart Quotes. Toggles replacement of straight single and double quotes with typographic equivalents.
  • Show/Hide Ruler. Toggles the text pane ruler.
  • Copy Ruler. Copy the current paragraph's ruler settings.
  • Paste Ruler. Paste clipboard ruler settings on the current selected paragraph.
  • Table… Inserts a table into $Text and opens the Table dialog.
  • List… Opens the List panel.
  • Insert Date. This causes the current date, in short format (e.g. 8/3/06), to be added at the insertion point in a current note's text. Short date day/month order depends on the user's OS settings.
  • Insert Time. This causes the current time, in short format (e.g. 22:16), to be added at the insertion point in a current note's text.
  • Insert Date And Time. This causes the current date and time, date in short format (e.g. 8/3/06 22:16), to be added at the insertion point in a current note's text.
