Google Docs generally uses a standard font whenever you are creating a document. However, if you aren’t happy with its appearance and want to add a little spice to it, you can. And learning how to change the default font will be a great place to start with.
If you are new to creating Google forms, we have an article that can help you out.
Here’s how you can change the default font
- Start your browser
- Open a Google Docs file
- Then change the font.
- Click the drop-down box, make sure the Style is set to “Normal Text,”.
- This refers to the main text style i.e., excluding titles or headings used throughout the created document.
Note– Certain formatting can be applied to the default font, for example, size, bold, underline, color, as well as a highlight color.
- Type a few words or lines in the font you want, then highlight them using your mouse.
- Navigate to Format > Paragraph Styles > Normal Text, then click on “Update ‘Normal Text’ to match.”
- Before you save the changes to Normal Text, you have the ability to change the default font for titles as well as headings.
- To do so, click on one of the options from the drop-down menu, then begin to enter the font you desire. Then, just like before, navigate to Format > Paragraph Styles > Title, then click “Update ‘Title’ to match.”
- To save this as the default style every time you open a new document, navigate to Format > Paragraph Styles > Options, then click on “Save as My Default Styles.”
- If you want to reset the font back to the original defaults, navigate to Format > Paragraph Styles > Options, then click “Reset Styles” to revert the changes you had made in the previous step.
That’s all folks! Next time you open a new document, then start typing, your text will be in the font you have chosen to, by default.
