John:

OK. We get that and thanks.

But here's another thing we don't get. Suppose there is a font change in a document. In Word, if we move the insertion point to the spot where the change occurs, the font appearing in the little window in the tool bar is the font of the text preceding the insertion point. So, if we add text there, it will be in the font of the preceding text. Same thing with a color change. If we wan't the added text to be in the font or color of the following text do we have to add it in the font of the preceding text and then highlight it and change it?

When we do this operation in Word Perfect, we display the codes and, in the lower window, we can place the cursor either before or after the font or color change. We know this must be better because that's the way we've always done it (just kidding)!
