The Edit menu starts off like any other Macintosh Edit menu. It is shown in Figure 7-2.
Frontier's Edit Menu
The Undo item changes according to the previous action. It changes from Can't Undo to Undo Move, for example, if you have just moved a headline in an outline document.
The Select All option is context-sensitive. For example, it selects all of the text in a word processing text document. In a script or outline, it selects all of the text in the current heading. If the entire line is selected (including the item marker), it selects all lines at the same level. (Try it!) In a table, it selects the entire name of the current object.
You may not be accustomed to seeing the font and styling options on the Edit menu. You'll notice that Frontier dims the last three choices unless you are editing a word processing text document.
