When working with small bodies of text, you might find editing text directly in the Drawing window more convenient. You can edit Artistic and Paragraph text by dragging it.
For large bodies of text, you may want to edit in the Edit Text dialog box, which lets you find and replace text and provides access to writing tools and formatting options. In cases where perspective, envelope, or extrude effects have been applied to Artistic text, you must use the Edit Text dialog box. For more information about perspective, envelope, and extrude, see "Creating special effects" on page 431.
In addition, if you use the Edit Text dialog box frequently, you may want to change your default settings to display it automatically when you click the Text tool. You can also use the Microsoft Intellimouse to scroll through the Edit Text dialog box.
