Ctrl-Down in mac

I cannot find the way to toggle from math mode to text in TeXWord Mac. The user guide indicates ctrl-down but it does not seem to work in my mac (Spanish - ISO keyboard). Could you help me? Another question, how is the itemized list is suposed to work? When I push the button, I am prompted for the first item but for subsequent ones I don't see any other way that typing the tex \item command in the editor. Am I missing something? Thanks in advance

There is no toggle concept in LaTeX.
You can talk only about math object (NO TOGGLING).
To escape any latex structure (including math) you can use Ctrl+Down (or Cmd+Down on Mac)
Take into attention that only syntacsicaly completed constructions ($$...$$ and $...$) are supported.
Such constructions as $...$ and $$...$$ are unsupported by this command.
In case of such constructions only positioning via Source window is possible.

There is context menu which is opened by clicking right mouse button.
Click right mouse button over itemize structure.
You will see set of commands available inside itemize list.

Take into attention that context menu provides hundreds of advanced commands such as conversion of environments, changing math formulas, editing tables, etc.

Thanks a lot. Another question, is there any way to add or modify compilation options? I am trying to work with Tufte book template and it gives me many errors that I belive that are related to a wrong compilation. Is there any compatibility issues with the tufte book class? a sample of the errors follow: is Package microtype Warning: You don't seem to be using pdftex, luatex or xetex. (microtype) microtype' only works with these engines. (microtype) I will quit now. In other editors it works with the pdflatex engine. thanks

It is warning. Your document will be formatted without pdftex.

Anyway. pdfTeX can't be used in WYSIWYG environment.
This restriction can't be changed by option.

Thanks a lot for your help and sorry for the stupid questions (I am a beginner with this editor but I like it very much) Now I have another problem. For some reasons the mac interfase sometimes change the fontsize of a window after an accidental combination of mouse movements that I cannot figure out. The thing is that normally ctrl 0 reset the fontsize to normal, but in the source editor of TeXWord it does not work. Is there any way to reset the source font to the normal size? (or change it if necesary?

Mouse wheel with pressed Ctrl/Cmd keys zoom in/out.

Page Window may be also zoomed using View menu or toolbar icons.

Source Window text may be changed in Options - Editing Settings - Script/Font

In Page Window there are several function to zoom page.
What is normal size in Source Window ? Is it default size ?

Than you very much. I was using the default size, but it is good to know how to change it.

There is question "Whats is normal size ?" It is not answer.
