Jarte font formatting allows you to choose any installed font and to control a font's size, style, and color. The available font styles are bold, italic, underline, strikeout, subscript, and superscript.
Note that only the font and font size can be changed when editing plain text documents. Even then, the choice of font and font size is only used for display purposes. This limitation exists because plain text documents are not capable of recording font and paragraph formatting information.
The Highlight Marker is used to highlight text with a colored marker. After choosing the desired color the mouse cursor changes to to indicate Jarte is in Highlight Marker mode. Use the mouse to select the text to be highlighted and its background color is changed to the chosen color. If you want to highlight individual words you can simply single click the words to be highlighted. Highlight Marker mode is ended when either the Esc key is pressed, End Highlight Marker is selected from the Font menu, or you begin editing the document.
An easy way to repeat use of the Highlight Marker's previously used color is to use the Format Brush's Repeat Previous Brush feature. For example, if your most recent use of the Highlight Marker in the current editing session was to perform yellow highlighting, then pressing Ctrl+G instantly reestablishes the yellow Highlight Marker additional use.

Favorite and Recent Fonts
Jarte provides quick access to your favorite fonts and recently used fonts. In Jarte's classic layout, favorite and recent fonts are listed in blue at the top of the fonts list in the Font Tools panel. Favorite fonts are designated with a green check mark. To designate a font as a favorite font it must be first be chosen as the current font, and then check the Mark as a Favorite Font check box.
A font manager is useful for organizing fonts in a way that makes it easy for you to choose the font you need for a particular task.
Jarte's Font Manager feature is actually a shortcut to an external font manager program. Jarte looks for the installation of Nexus Font font manager by default. If Nexus Font is not installed then you are given the opportunity to specify your own installed font manager program instead. You can switch Jarte's Font Manager feature to a different font manager program at any time by selecting Font Manager while pressing the Shift key.
