I need an answer quick

I have to have this document printed up for a friend tomorrow and I’m not even through writing it. I can’t get the text attribute bar to show up in my ‘new’ Project, can’t find it in Preferences or under the Menus. Can someone show me the way, I sure do need it for margins, spacing, fonts, bolding, ital, etc.

Text attribute bar? Do you mean the ruler? Cmd-R, or Text > Ruler > Show Ruler.

Keith, thank you! You saved the day!
