The drop-down menu next the the T, where my image shows 350, only allows you to go to 72 pt. Drag select the 72 and type 350. On this same bar, select the font Blackoak std.
With your options set, click on your work space and type a lower case “x.”

Go to the word “Window” on the top bar and click the word “Styles.” This will open the Styles Panel. Click on the Orange button, which is third from the left on the fourth row.
