How To Keep Font From Changing In Google Docs

One of the most common challenges users face in Google Docs is the mysterious and often frustrating phenomenon of changing fonts. You’re working on a document, have your fonts perfectly set, and then suddenly they all change! It can be quite puzzling, but don’t worry! In this blog post, we will guide you on how to keep your font from changing in Google Docs.

Setting Default Font

The most effective way to keep your font from changing is to set a default font. Google Docs provides a straightforward way to do this. Let’s go through the steps:

  1. Open a new or existing Google Docs document.
  2. Select the Font and Size that you want to use.
  3. Click on Format in the menu bar.
  4. Hover over Paragraph styles, then Normal Text.
  5. Click on Update ‘Normal text’ to match.
  6. Next, again hover over Paragraph styles, then go to Options.
  7. Finally, click on Save as my default styles.
Your selected font and size will now be the default for all new documents. This won’t apply to existing documents, unfortunately, but at least your future work will be in the desired format.

Use Clear Formatting

Another possible scenario is that your font changes in the middle of the document. This can happen if you copy and paste text from another source. The solution to this is using the Clear Formatting function. Here’s how:

  1. Select the text with the formatting you want to remove.
  2. Click on Format in the menu bar.
  3. Select Clear Formatting.
The selected text will now revert back to your default font and size. Keep in mind that this will also remove any other formatting like bold, italics, or hyperlinks.

So, there you have it. By using these simple steps, you can keep your font from changing in Google Docs. No more unexpected surprises. Happy writing!
