"Overlining" text

How do you "Overscore" or "Overline" text in PCB layout ? The Tilde character works well in "Schematic Capture" but doesn't work in "PCB Layout".

The "Select" tool (Arrow symbol)

Is there a "Hotkey" for activating the "Select" tool ? It reduce a lot of "Cursor" movement.

Re: Removing unnecessary "Ratlines"

Tom, you touched on a point that may have relevance to my problem. I have the placed the resolution at the highest possible level and then some, beyond the menu choices.

Re: Creating multi line text with edit and format control

I have been looking, but haven't found anything either. Am I correct in assuming that there are no multi-key strokes for using the arrow keys and that there is no way to edit text that was previously entered ???

Re: Removing unnecessary "Ratlines"

I'm referring to what appears to me to be an error with the "Ratlines", although I should be very careful before affirming this as far too often, it's turned out to be "Operator Error" ! A light blue ratline remains, although the indicated net highlights completely when selected, which I thought was...
