I am having a devil of a time figuring out how one can italicize some word in Text generator without doing the entire line! Help. I really don't think I should have to go to LiveType to do this simple task.

    It gives you all kind of options... Including italic

Choose a font and make sure the "I" button is pushed (it's a little to the left of the "style skew x"
