Choose a font

To choose a font for a new block of text:

  1. Select the Text tool in the toolbar.
  2. Click the font name in either the tool options bar or the Text panel to open the font menu.
  3. Choose a font.

To set the text formatting for existing text:

  1. Select the Text tool in the toolbar.
  2. Click the container that has the text you want to select. The bounding box will turn blue.
  3. Select the specific text you want to modify.
  4. Click the font name in either the tool options bar or the Text panel to open the font menu.
  5. Choose a font.

Adding fonts from Google Fonts

In addition to the common fonts that are built in to Google Web Designer, you can also use hundreds of free, open-source fonts available through Google Fonts.

  1. Select the Text tool in the toolbar.
  2. Click the font name in either the tool options bar or the Text panel to open the font menu.
  3. Click More fonts… at the bottom of the font menu.
