Summary0005979: F2 displays and uses default values for text
DescriptionWhen a text frame is using values different from defaults, F2 displays default values and not the values of the frame: eg if your text is 16pt, it will start from 12pt, therefore making it difficult to go down by 1pt unless you can remember what was the exact value.

Steps To Reproducecreate a text frame, input some text, change eg size
exit frame, and select frame again

If you place the cursor ín the text frame, the correct value is displayed.

Thanks, Jean. It is a tweak I was not aware of.

I have a question though... when the text frame is selected (before the cursor is placed inside the text frame), these default values SHOULD have some relevance, some use... and I personnally see very little.
It would actually be better to either grab the information from the frame (if all the text has the same settings eg font, font size..., which is sometimes true, sometimes not) or then display the settings in grey as in "more than one setting applies".
