Font Formatting with a Button

I must be missing something obvious, which seems to happen pretty often as I learn FMP.


Say for example, a table has a notes field.  A user wants to format text.  To make it easier, we might want to give the user a couple of buttons.  Maybe a Default button to clean up text clipped from another application, or a Heading button to set color/font/size in one click.


In the script steps I see commands to set formatting but they appear to work only on an entire field.  How would someone script this so the formatting change would apply to only the selected text?  The manual is opaque on this, which is odd since it is such a common behavior to all text editors.


Thanks in advance.
