Working with Text

BookBildr supports Google Fonts, which means you have hundreds of fonts to choose from. To make working with fonts easier, we offer you to select a set of fonts and use it in your book.

To delete a font from your selected fonts, click on its name in the Selected Fonts box. Important: don’t delete any fonts you’re using in your book from your selected fonts because your book will switch to the default font (Open Sans).
