The Textbox Toolbar: A Tour

If the textbox toolbar has only one row of icons, click the double down arrow on the far right to expand it. Click the Full Screen icon on the left of the double arrow to expand the textbox to full screen. To collapse the textbox, click again on the Full Screen icon. The icons on the top two rows are straightforward and similar to those used in the Microsoft Word app. Move your cursor over the ones on the third row and wait till you see a definition pop-up. Use the first YouTube icon to embed a private video from your own YouTube channel; note that you will need to log in to your (private) YouTube account; use the Mashups button to embed any publicly accessible YouTube video as well as other media. Do not use the Edit/Insert Embedded Media icon. But when appropriate do not refrain from using a smiley or other emoticon!
