When you use Muse to design web pages, you can choose between three different font types to apply fonts to text. When you publish or export pages, the font type you apply determines how text content is rendered. The three different font types also affect site behavior and performance in varying degrees, so it is important to understand the results of choosing each type.
To add text to a web page, you can:
- Use the Text tool to type text directly on the page
- Choose File > Place and choose an external TXT file to place the text content
- Copy text from another external source and then paste it on the page
Once you have created a text frame that contains text, you can use the options in the Text panel or the Control panel to set the font's color, size, style, alignment and other formatting options. You can also use the Font menu to choose a font (such as Arial or Helvetica) to match your page design.
In this article, you'll get an overview of the three different types of fonts you can apply using the Font menu. You'll learn about the benefits and potential issues associated with each font type, and strategies for controlling text and editing text frames.
