Changing Font style, size, and color


Color and fonts are an important part of a successful Publisher document. Since the range of choices for color palettes and fonts can get overwhelming, Publisher provides pre-selected fonts and colors that work well together. These Color Schemes and Font Schemes can take much of the guesswork out of designing your document, and can make a big difference in the impact of your document. And, if you want to branch out from the provided Schemes, you can also adjust the color and fonts of each item in your document individually.

Using a Color Scheme or Font Scheme:
  • In the Task Pane, click on Color Scheme or Font Scheme.
  • Try different choices for color palettes or fonts.

  • Use the icons on the formatting toolbar to change the following:
    • Select a Font Face from the font list.
    • Click the Bold, Italic, or Underline icons.
    • Change font color using the arrow next to the Font Color icon.

Design Tips
  • Be careful with color contrast - don't use light fonts on a light background or dark fonts on a dark background - the result can be very hard to read.
  • Try to limit the number of different fonts or colors in your document - they can get distracting.
