There's an odd script step called "Allow Formatting Bar" which (if set to "On") apparently lights up the "Aa" editing controls if the Status Area also happens to be visible but doesn't actually cause the Formatting Bar (font, size, color, bold, italic, alignment, etc.) to be displayed. For that one must either click on the "Aa" icon or select "Formatting Bar" from the "View" menu. IS there a script step that does this? I haven't been able to find one, and I'd like to make that functionality available via a script.
