A TextFontReference encodes a font change applicable over a given range of text.
The font reference is absolute: unlike a TextFontChange, it is independent of the textStyle governing display of this text.

The Font Size Summary (Help menu) gives the list of available fonts.


 (TextFontReference toFont: (StrikeFont familyName: 'Atlanta' size: 22))

TextFontReference objects are used to create instances of Text.

By sending the message #font to an instance of TextFontReference you get access to the font.

aString := 'Aa Bc Cd Dd Ee Ff'.
