Font formatting options in Storyline 360

Here are some tips for working with the font tools:

  • Hover over the buttons in the Font group to see their functions.
  • You can apply formatting to an entire text box, or to a single word or paragraph in the text box. To quickly select a word, just double-click it. To select a paragraph, triple-click any word in the paragraph.
  • You can select multiple text boxes on a slide and format them all at once. Use Shift+click or Ctrl+click to select more than one text box, or click and drag around multiple text boxes. Then choose your formatting options.
  • Use text styles for a consistent design throughout your course.
  • Read this article to learn more about selecting colors for your font.
  • For even more control over your text, right-click the text box, choose Format Shape, then select the Text Box tab on the left side of the window that appears. Learn more about formatting text boxes here.
