Universal Font change


I’ve written a bunch of scenes that are in one font and another bunch that are in another. Is there a way, after the fact, to make a “novel-wide” font change?



The simplest way to do this in the project is to select in the binder all the documents you want to change and then choose Documents > Convert > Formatting to Default Text Style to convert them to the formatting set in the Editor tab of Tools > Options… To set the formatting there, use the format bar and ruler to adjust the sample text; the blue A button on the left of the format bar opens the font options.

Keep in mind you also can override the formatting of your documents when you compile, so it’s not necessary to adjust this in the editor at all from that standpoint. But if you like to keep everything tidy and matching while working (and I confess I do), the convert formatting tool will clean it up. Just be sure to note the options available if you have any special formatting in the documents that you want to preserve, since by default it will adjust tabs and indents and such as well. If you have a document you’re unsure about, try duplicating it in the binder and running the conversion on one to experiment.
