8.1.9.2.1 Modifying a Text Object Using the Properties Palette

When you select a text object on the EER Diagram canvas, its properties are displayed in the Properties palette. Most of the properties accessible from the Properties palette apply to the appearance of a view on the EER Diagram canvas.

For a list of properties accessible through the Properties palette, see Section 8.1.1.12, “The Properties Palette”.
