icon button then to have to bring up the properties box and then change the

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.
