Font Properties


Specifies a font family. Click the Ellipsis button to open the Font Family Picker window where you can select from a list of installed fonts, specify a generic font family, or select a custom font family.

Consider specifying a generic font family, such as sans-serif, rather than a specific font. Many browsers and help systems use only fonts installed on the user’s computer. If you indicate a specific font, a user who does not have that font installed does not see the help output correctly. By selecting a generic font family, the user does not have to have the exact font specified, only a font from that family.

If you specify multiple fonts, separated by commas, the user’s browser displays the first available font in the list. For example, if you specify Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif and the user does not have the Verdana font installed, the browser displays in the Arial font for the help output instead.


Specifies the size of the font. Select a value from the list or select Custom, and then specify a number and unit of measure for the custom font size. The smaller value sets the font to a smaller size than the parent element. The larger value sets the font to a larger size than the parent element.


Specifies the font style, such as italic.


Specifies the font variation, such as small caps.


Specifies how thick or thin ePublisher displays text characters, such as bold. For a more precise weight, select from the numeric values, which range from 100 to 900. For example, a weight of 400 is the same as normal and 700 is the same as bold.
