How To Keep The Same Text Color In Google Docs

Google Docs is a powerful tool that offers a variety of features to make your documents more appealing and professional. One feature that is often overlooked but extremely useful is the ability to keep the same text color throughout your document. This can be especially helpful when you’re creating documents that need to adhere to a specific brand or color scheme. In this blog, we will guide you on how to keep the same text color in Google Docs.

Setting the Default Text Color in Google Docs

To set the default text color in Google Docs, you’ll need to first create a new document or open an existing one.

Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Go to the menu bar and select Format
  2. Hover over Text
  3. Select Color from the dropdown menu that appears
  4. Choose your desired color

After doing this, the color of your text should change to the color you’ve chosen. This will apply to any text that you type into your document from this point forward.

Applying the Same Text Color to Existing Text

If you want to change the color of the text that’s already in your document to match your new default color, follow these steps:

  1. Highlight the text you want to change
  2. Repeat the process above (go to Format > Text > Color and choose your color)

Your highlighted text should now match your default text color.


Keeping the same text color in Google Docs can make your documents look more consistent and professional. It’s a simple process that can greatly enhance the overall appearance of your documents. Remember, Google Docs doesn’t just limit you to changing the color of your text. You can also change the font style, size, and even add highlights to your text to make it stand out even more. Happy writing!
