Format text in documents with fonts on Mac
In many apps, you can format text by selecting fonts, font colours, font sizes and more in the Fonts window.
If your Mac has a Touch Bar, you can use it to quickly format selected text.
In an app on your Mac, choose Format > Show Fonts or Format > Font > Show Fonts.
If options for text underlining, colour and more aren’t shown at the top of the Fonts window, click the Action pop-up menu , then choose Show Effects. To preview options as you select them, choose Show Preview from the Action pop-up menu.
Select the text you want to format, then do any of the following:
Change the font: Select a collection, family or typeface (such as Bold). To search for a font, select All Fonts in the Collection column, then type the font name in the search field. If you don’t see the search field in the Fonts window, make the window wider.
Change the font size: Drag the slider or select a size in the list. If sizes aren’t shown, click the Action pop-up menu, choose Edit Sizes, then select Fixed List, Adjustable Slider or both.
Change the font colour: Click the Text Colour button, then select a colour in the Colours window. See Use colours in documents.
Underline or strike through text: Click the Text Underline or Text Strikethrough button, then choose an option from the pop-up menu, such as Double. To change the line colour, choose Colour from the pop-up menu, then click a colour.
Insert symbols and characters: Click the Action pop-up menu, choose Characters, then drag a symbol from the Character Viewer into your document.
Set typographic options: Click the Action pop-up menu, then choose Typography. If the selected font includes typography, select or deselect options.
Use Font Book to install and manage fonts on your Mac. To open it from the Fonts window, click the Action pop-up menu, then choose Manage Fonts. See the Font Book User Guide.
To format selected text in uppercase, lowercase or mixed case, choose Edit > Transformations, then choose an option.
