Reset $Text formatting

Now $Text is a fully RTF writing space, reformatting entire note texts is more complex, not least as discrete fonts are used for setting bold and italic text—albeit from the same font family. Indeed, if the font family of the $TextFont used in the note (or current selection) lacks a bold or italic variant, then those forms of styling cannot be applied unless a different $TextFont is selected. (A historical note. The Lucida Grande used in v5 had this problem: default Mac fonts included a bold font face but no italic).

Text-space formatting is controlled via three options on the Style sub-menu of the Format menu:

Document-level changes are also possible. In Document Settings/Text, when the default Text Font is changed, Tinderbox scans the text of every note in the document and changes each usage of the former text font to adopt the new font family while retaining the current size. As long as only one font family is in use for the $Text any bold and italic sections of text should adopt the new font (do note the need for the new font's font family to include installed bold and italic variants). Note text using other fonts are ignored. For instance, it would be unwelcome if such an update changed the monospace fonts used in Template- and Code-prototyped notes.
