It used to be that TB made it easy to format html text on the menubar with exact point size, larger/smaller buttons and so on.
Now, that has gone. Of course, you can go to the Format Menu above and click around, but the simplicity of a formatting menu bar just above your text is gone. For that -- you have to use Outlook.
Any suggestions.

What?

I still have a Format toolbar under the Subject line, right above the text, in a HTML composition window.

They did change it a bit in version 45.0.

There are format icons. But no icons for text size and point size.

Figured it out (partly). You have to right click to open up the customization options and then drag icons for increase font size and decrease font size. You still don't get point size though.

I don't recall Thunderbird ever providing buttons on the format bar to select specific font sizes by points. It was only larger or smaller in relation to the default.
