When I watch video tutorials about Construct 2 and we get into adding text the person doing the tutorial always has options in the properties window for the text such as color, font and size. I don't have that at all. Instead of that stuff I have Auto Font Size, Initial Visibility and ID (along with some other things.) How can I enable the properties for text and buttons?

Screen shot please.What object do you have?Text object?
You Are using TextBox and Buttons, the tutorial obviously used textbox
TextBox and Buttons don't have those options. You have to manually change css using an event.
on start layer - click TextBox or Button and use set css style and add your styles there
Edit: or possibly they wrote a plugin / or using a plugin?
