  • You may try using HTML and directly specifying font size inside the HTML, but I agree, it may be a good suggestion to be able to set font size and color from the toolbar.

  • if you post html or other code you can use the 'insert code block' button in the toolbar or you can use the html mode, also in the toolbar' to format the html.

    <html>
    <body>
    
    <h1>My First Heading</h1>
    
    <p>My first paragraph.</p>
    
    </body>
    </html>

  • It would be nice to actually see the html have an effect. It is not clear why your wording 'My first heading' is not a larger font size, given that it is embedded in <h1>.  I tried it was well.  thanks

  • You need to first press html button on the toolbar. Then you can apply HTML formatting and press UPDATE button.

    In other words,

    Start from pressing HTML button

    Then type your text and apply formatting

    Then don't forget the UPDATE button at the bottom

    And this is what you will see

    But it looks like font size is ignored or automatically converted, as I tried it now a few times and didn't get a big font.

  • "hello"

    This is what I got with your code, although I see it got converted to

    <h1>"hello"</h1>
    <h1></h1>
    <span style="color: blue;"><span> </span></span>

    That depends on how you specify the font size. If you add it via DIV style or SPAN style it certainly works.
