And then on the Options bar, I'll click …on the button to bring up the Character and Paragraph panels toward the right …edge of Controls on the Options bar for the Type tool. …And then you'll notice, that on the Character panel, I have a set of buttons …that allow me to adjust the individual attributes. …
