Font Styling

Font

The Font is the typeface that will be applied to the document text. Fonts are pre-defined sets of characters with uniform styling collected under one name. The Editor's default collection of fonts includes the most popular serif fonts (Times New Roman, Georgia), sans-serif fonts (Arial, Verdana, Tahoma), and monospaced fonts (Courier New).

To change a font, open the Font menu by clicking the  button on the toolbar. The font drop-down list contains a number of typefaces that are available for your use. To make the choice easier, the font names are displayed in the font that they represent, giving you a preview of what the text will look like.

A font can be applied to the whole document, a paragraph, or a section of text of any length — even a single letter. Do note, however, that for aesthetic and readability reasons it is recommended not to combine too many different fonts in one document. It is recommended that you give preference to the Styles menu instead, which has been specifically designed for your website by your web developer.

   

Font Size

The Size determines how big or small a font used in the document text will be. Font sizes are defined in a descriptive manner, like small or Bigger. To change a font size for a selection of text, open the Size menu on the toolbar. The font size drop-down list contains a number of sizes that you can use. To make the choice easier, the items of the list are displayed in the font size that they represent, giving you a preview of what the text will look like.

Bold, Italic, Underlined, and Strike-through

You may also arrange the way your font looks by choosing whether the font should be bold, italic, underlined or striked-through. These four basic font styles are frequently used in both print and online documents. Due to their popularity each one of them is available under a separate toolbar button. To turn the style on, press the button or use the respective keyboard shortcut. To turn it off, use the button or a keyboard shortcut again.
