This refers to Ingolf Dahl's palette SetFaceAndFont -- see:
I've been using it for some years as the quickest way to apply various
formatting to selected text. E.g., in a Text cell select a Mathematica
name and click the palette's button that changes the font to Courier. Or
select some text and change its font to Times Italic. Or change the
background color for the selection to a light yellow.
But with Mathematica 9 (or at least 9.0.1), clicking one of the
palette's buttons now applies the effect to the entire cell -- not just
to the selection.
Has anybody else experienced this? What might be the reason for the
change in behavior and how might it be fixed?
