As @pruthe mentions, the formatting options will appear somewhere. However, if you select text that starts and ends in the same line, the styling options will usually be above the selected text. If, your selection spreads over the end of one line into the next line, the formatting options will appear above the selection if your text selection starts before the midpoint of the paragraph width. If your selection starts after the midpoint of the paragraph width and spans more than one line, the formatting options appear at the top-left of the text container. This may well be a bug, but it shouldn’t cause any great problems - I’m sure it will be fixed at some point. Personally, I don’t use those formatting options unless it’s for a whole text box. Coming from an older school of web development, I always wrap text in a span if it’s going to be different than the main body of text. This allows me the opportunity of creating a class to style the spanned text and even give it different colours or fonts. By working this way and assuming the styling options are to be repeated, I can apply the same class to other spans as and when they are created. If I have several different styling options within the same block of text, I simply create classes for each styling option. Of course, creating the span can result in the same issue because you are still selecting text and the wrap in span option is in the formatting bar that appears when text is selected. So, you may still have to locate the formatting options at the top of the text container if necessary.
