How to use different fonts with Google Docs

If you’re like me, you love Google Docs.

Your trusty, go-anywhere-with-WIFI answer to your document needs.


What I’m not such a big fan of is how basic it looks. Blah. Boring.
Sure, Arial is fine. Times New Roman’s a classic. But I want more!

The dream is possible. Even better, it’ll take you just 2 minutes to get some stylin’ font action in your Google Doc!

Here’s your standard situation…

Your plain vanilla Google doc. A little lackluster. Let’s jazz it up.

Step 1

Click on the font menu and the dropdown menu will open.

Click on “More fonts…” at the bottom.

Step 2

The font menu will open up with a glorious world of fonts!

If you know the name of the font you’re looking for, you can search for it by name using the search function in the upper left hand corner.

Or just scroll through and click on the font that catches your eye.

When you select one, it’ll show up on the “My fonts” list on the right hand side.

Click “OK” at the bottom when you’re done selecting fonts.

Step 3

Now you can use your new fonts like usual!

The fonts you’ve selected have been added to your font collection in the drop-down menu.

Step 4

Wanna fancy your font up further? Add a splash of color into the mix.

It’s easy to choose a standard color from the drop down menu.

If you want to brand your document even more, you can click “Custom…” at the bottom of the dropdown color menu to get a wider range of colors. If you know the particular color codes for your branding, you can select that too.

Now you’re ready to roll!  To pretty word processing,
