    Will there ever be different coloured text and fonts for the text editor or would that be too reminiscent of one of those sites where people promote their scams, erm�books?

    When I write my articles in Office Word, I tend to have the titles and subtitles in red.

    I can fully accept that the reason is probably because the creative will garnish their hub so that it looks like a garishly decorated Christmas tree, isn�t it?tongue

    Not the first time, I'm sure many hubbers won't like the option smile

    Some one can be creative with colorful texts but some may wish to be traditional with B/W.

      I've never seen a site that looks in any way decent, readable or professional when it contains different coloured text.

    It's tricky, using multicolored texts and making them look professional. 

    Plus, different browsers do Things to colors, and may transform that beautifully tinted text into something repulsive, or invisible.

    But I'd still like a little more flexibility.  A few more non-gonzo font choices, a bit more control over size and the ability to center-align (maybe even right-align) text would make me happy.

    I’ve all ready mentioned different coloured fonts, so how about different font types and sizes?

    When I’m working on a sidebar, i.e. to the right of the article I’ve written, it looks a little strange to have the fonts the same size, whereas you might have a caption or a sidebar with smaller font sizes, perhaps to distinguish them from the main text, and to prevent it from taking up too much space.

    There are a variety of font sizes and effects built-in to the text capsule.

    Seriously? Oh man...nevermind then. I'll check them out.

    There isn't that much variety, though.

    One workaround I sometimes use for captioning photos and videos is to add a text capsule and use superscript for the text.  It comes out smaller.

    I'm just used to all the options I get in Microsoft Word '07.

    I have just edited a few of my hubs and they look tidy now.
