MC302485 – This feature update will enable the ability to access all simple text editing tools from the floating horizontal web part toolbar, rather than having to open the right property pane for editing options. This floating toolbar will now dynamically resize to match the width of your Text web part, maximizing the number of tools you immediately see. All other tools, and the property pane, can be accessed from the ellipse drop down menu.
