Chapter Description

In this lesson, you will explore the text formatting and the style options available to you in Muse.

Review answers

  1. In Muse, you can type text directly into your pages after creating a text frame using the Text tool, you can paste text from almost any other application (the formatting will be lost), you can choose File > Place to place a .txt file, or you can copy text from another Muse site and paste the text into the site, retaining the formatting (and styles) of the text content.
  2. Smart Guides are temporary snap-to guides and pop-ups that appear when you create or manipulate objects. They help you align, edit, and transform objects relative to other objects, page guides, or both by snap-aligning and sometimes displaying gap measurements to help evenly space multiple objects.
  3. The three categories of fonts that can be used in Muse are: web safe fonts, web fonts, and system fonts.
  4. Paragraph styles apply attributes to an entire paragraph, but character styles can be applied to selected text only. Character styles can include only the following formatting options: font, font size, color, styles (italic, bold, underline), and letter spacing.
  5. The easiest way to bring paragraph and character styles from one site to another is to copy and paste text that has the desired styles applied from one site to another.
  6. The text in the text frame is converted to an image when the site is previewed, published, or exported as HTML.
