Modifying font combinations

Modifying font combinations

Use the Edit Font List command to set the font combinations that appear in the Property inspector and the Text > Font submenu.

Font combinations determine how a browser displays text in your web page. A browser uses the first font in the combination that is installed on the user’s system; if none of the fonts in the combination are installed, the browser displays the text as specified by the user’s browser preferences.

To modify font combinations:

  1. Select Text > Font > Edit Font List.
  2. Select the font combination from the list at the top of the dialog box.

    The fonts in the selected combination are listed in the Chosen Fonts list in the lower-left corner of the dialog box. To the right is a list of all available fonts installed on your system.

  3. Do one of the following:
    • To add or remove fonts from a font combination, click the arrows button (<< or >>) between the Chosen Fonts list and the Available Fonts list.
    • To add or remove a font combination, click the Plus (+) and Minus (–) buttons at the top of the dialog box.
    • To add a font that is not installed on your system, type the font name in the text field below the Available Fonts list and click the << button to add it to the combination. Adding a font not installed on your system is useful, for example, for specifying a Windows-only font when you are developing pages on a Macintosh.
    • To move the font combination up or down in the list, click the arrow buttons at the top of the dialog box.

To add a new combination to the font list:

  1. Select Text > Font > Edit Font List.
  2. Select a font from the Available Fonts list and click the << button to move the font to the Chosen Fonts list.
  3. Repeat step 2 for each subsequent font in the combination.

    To add a font that is not installed on your system, type the font name in the text field below the Available Fonts list and click the << button to add the font to the combination. Adding a font not installed on your system is useful, for example, for specifying a Windows-only font when you are developing pages on a Macintosh.

  4. When you have finished selecting specific fonts, select a generic font family from the Available Fonts menu and click the << button to move the generic font family to the Chosen Fonts list.

    Generic font families include cursive, fantasy, monospace, sans-serif, and serif. If none of the fonts in the Chosen Fonts list are available on the user’s system, the text appears in the default font associated with the generic font family. For example, the default monospace font on most systems is Courier.
