Making Changes in the Text Editor

Text_Editor_Color_1

The easiest way to change the color of text is to first reveal the full tools pane by clicking on the keyboard-looking icon. You will then have the option of choosing a color from the palette provided or click on custom.

The hex number for the purple headings on IPC is #451245

Text_Editor_Color_2

When you click on custom this box pops up.

You can select a color in the square, use the slider directly to its right to change the hue, or input your RGB or hex variables. Use only the string of numbers/letters in the hex box - it already has #.

The code you see is HTML, which is what tells your browser (Firefox, Chrome, etc.) what to show you.

  1. The text-align tag tells where to position the words. You can change this to left or right.
  2. The font-weight controls the thickness of the letters.
  3. The font-size controls how large the letters are.
  4. And the <strong> tag makes the text bold.

This is useful if you want to tweak things and the tools don't give you the options you want.

Another thing to keep in mind is that HTML doesn't recognize spaces (except for one in between each word or character). In order to add spaces you need to use the regular word processing non-breakable space, which is &nbsp;

Each string will create another space in between the words.
