What of bulleted text?
If you can make this extension in a way that when it is just pasted on a page it affects all the text on a page that uses the same font, it will very good.

Hello Frankus, strange that you could not manage to work it out. this is for defined heading or paragraohs within the extension.
1- simply drag and drop the extension to where you want to have the text
2- enter font name
3- browse to fonts per screenshot
4- you caneither enter a heading or paragraph or both e.g. if you enter a heading and leave paragraph blank, it does show heading only with new font.

Please let me know how you getting on.

mine will probably be the most stupid question ever, i know
but.. can i just use the font by writing my text in the heading/pharagraph space?
if so, what if i need words in bold, or text which is centerd etc etc? thank you very much for what you are doing
Hello Givi20,
This works with where you have dropped the location and I am not sure if I could bold or center it as it will loses some major functions.

Regards,
Reza

I recommend rendering the text as an image, then apply your font.

Right Click > Object properties >Publish text as image

Use GIF optimized for best quality and apply your background color as the transparency color.

The reason you are having issues with the text is the text frame spacing. Large text produces large spacing.

You really should render it as an image. If you choose GIF optimized you get an image with a transparent background. This way it will not matter what is behind it.

Or you can use a graphics program to build this image from your text and import it into WB.

What is the font? I can build it for you if you don't have an app for this.

Cursive fonts like the one you have chosen have built in spacing, so using them large will always introduce larger spacing. This may explain it.

But you don't have to eliminate the background. If you build the image in PNG or GIF with transparent background, you can set it over anything you wish. I will be glad to build it for you and send via email. Just let me know what the font is.

Perfect! That's exactly how to do it. Now it will display properly in all scenarios.
