Text Box tool in Acrobat PDF

Yesterday, I added a comment in a pdf file and tried to changed the font type and color of my comments in the Text Box. I supposed that this can be easily done from the text box properties. Guess what?! There is no such options! (Figure 1)
Thanks to Internet, I found the solution provided by someone who met the same problem. The tips is -------------
Use the hot key "Ctrl+e"!
The Ctrl e function can bring up the Text Box Text Properties, where font type color and other properties can be changed. (Figure 2).
I just don't understand the User Interface developers' design concept. Why not make everybody's life easier?
