how do I get text properties to show up?

In preview when I click on the "hello world" text it does not bring up the text properties box. Help?

Which version you are using?

If you are referring to the preview window from the Text (XML) tab, then clicking the hello word text wouldn't do much. You should click the hello world text from the Design tab to get to the properties.

This looks like the problem and the solution, but this is for a linux system. Do you have a solution for windows 10?
