Fonts, Formatting & Themes

Fonts

Workflowy currently does not allow you to change the font size but we do allow you to choose from a set of font styles.  

Please note, the font settings are "global" and affect the fonts anywhere you type. You cannot however select one block of text and change the font.

Formatting

We allow you to select any block of text and make it bold, italic or underlined.  Simply highlight the text, and use the following keyboard commands:  

For bold, use the CTRL + B keys

For italic, use the CTRL + I keys

For underline, use the CTRL + U keys

We do not allow color formatting currently, but you may reference this article for some 3rd party solutions:

Themes

You can also change the "Theme", which will provide a variation of the look and feel of the font and background colors.

With the Pro membership, you can access more fonts and themes....but please note, the additional themes will only be visible if you are using the web version of Workflowy, but not on Chrome Desktop or mobile.

    I would love to be able to bold also @Text or #Text. Can you make it?

    I wrote an extension that will format code wrapped in 1 or 3 backticks (like markdown):

    I would really like to be able to increase font size, or to zoom in. I am using Google Chrome, and WorkFlowy as a Google Chrome app. Why can't I zoom in as I can on web-pages?

    I use WF as a Chromebook app as well and find the text quite small on an HD screen. One workaround, Geza, is to enable screen magnification (Settings > Advanced > Accessibility) on your Chromebook then use Ctrl + Alt + Brightness up and Ctrl + Alt + Brightness down to magnify the screen. It's not ideal as the resolution suffers, so an in-app solution would be preferable!

    Really like this app and how it works. Helps me clarify my thoughts and ideas.

    Just offer a new choice of a font that is larger by nature.   Can't be that hard for mobile. When you do this I will never use a task app again.

    Apart from the adjustable (individually) font sizes, I think it would be great to have a bigger canvas/sheet/virtual paper as well. I have indents up to 12 levels and at that point, the paragraphs become a narrow column of text its irritating!

    Is it just me or do pretty much all the examples in the help videos have a size hierarchy for different layers of indentation? Higher layers seem to have a bigger point size than lower, this looks really helpful. Is this the case? How can we use this?
