How to Edit Fonts

Each SiteCreator theme includes default, global font settings for all your text. But you can change these font settings through the Change Fonts area found under the Design tab.

There are numerous font controls to choose from in this section, but only a few of them have much impact on the overall look of your site. The most important of these settings is called Paragraph Text, so let’s use this one as our example.

Paragraph text controls the default font for all the Text elements you add to your site. You can change the Font Family, Size, Weight, and Color.

There are a little over 100 font families available. Each of these is what is known as a “web safe” font. This means any person, using any browser, on any computer, will be able to view the font without any trouble.

Set your font size to any number you like; however, for paragraph text we recommend keeping the size between 12 and 20 pixels. This ensures that your text is large enough to read, yet not so large as to give the impression you’re screaming at people.

Weight options vary by family, but most include the standard options: Bold, Regular, Light.

And to select Color, we provide a small range of recommended colors to choose from. Or, you can expand your options with the arrow in the lower right of the box, to choose from the entire rainbow or enter an HTML/hex color code.

You can adjust these four options (Font Family, Size, Weight, and Color) for all text on your site, under each type listed. Paragraph Text controls the font for all of your Text elements, Paragraph Titles control Title elements, Navigation controls your site’s Navigation Bar, and so on from there.

You can see exactly what will be changed on a page by scrolling over the individual control – this highlights in blue exactly which kind of text will be changed by your updates.
