Smart Icon - Change Font

Talking about smart Icons, as a developer I also set up two more smart icons,
one to change the font color to dark blue, the other to change the font to red,
my two favorite developing colors. It doesn't seem like a big deal but when
developing it's a lot easier to just highlight the text and press the smart
icon button then to have to bring up the properties box and then change the
color.

To add the smart icon, just go to tools, smart icons, pick a custom icon and
paste the formula below. This will set the font to Dark Blue and make it bold,
I use it for my headings. Then I add the Normal smart Icon (A Big N) next to
it so when I get the the field I add the field and press the Normal text
button, it saves time and key strokes. You could also make it italic if you
like that font also.
rem "Make Dark Blue";
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[DarkBlue]);
@Command([TextBold])

rem "Make Dark Red";
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[DarkRed]);
@Command([TextBold])
