New to Blender and I need a little help

Hello , I’m having trouble finding the “F” Tab (Font Tab) on the right index box. I don’ know if I have missed something because it does not show up. In most text video’s there is a font tab/“F” Tab that you can click but it is not showing up in the resent Blender 2.68a download, does anyone know what I have missed. Thank you and sorry about the noob question.

This will only show when you have a Text object selected
