Better Font Colors
About this Tutorial
This, this basic black and this basic white background. What you can do, how you can fix this for yourself is when you're working in sheets that you read or anyone else reads, and everyone who works with you is gonna thank you for this. Basically just go up to the font color and down here in custom you can type in any hex.
I'm gonna do something really, really simple to remember, but you can use 2 22 and make that much, much more subtle, right? So you can go from a basic black to 2 22. It's gonna be a super subtle difference and almost no one's gonna notice. But like over time for hours, your eyes are gonna thank you, but you can go much more intense, much more, less intense, and you can still read it.
4, 4, 4 let's you read it and then you can also change the background. This, this dark white. Again, it's just very bright. Sometimes I had to, for years turn my screen intensity down because I was just in Google Sheets all the time. But now I found this great paper color. It's like literally the name of this color, something like paper.
And it's this really funky hex code that all you have to remember in order to change your colors to this and make it really nice to read, you need to remember four things, okay? 4, 4, 4, 4. And then Facebook. Facebook, fate. That's all you have to remember. If you remember 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, and Facebook, Facebook, fate, those four things, then you can change this all the time.
So all you have to do is go up to the color of the text, click custom type in 4, 4 4, 4, 4. Click. Okay. And then the highlight color of this, this fill bucket, custom is just Facebook, fb fb, F eight, Facebook, Facebook. What's the fate of Facebook? Who knows? Facebook. Facebook Fate, and 4 44. That's all you have to remember, and your eyes are gonna thank you.
After like 12 hours of looking at Google Sheets, this is going to make a world of difference. Find more tips and firstname.lastname@example.org. I have four tutorials there right now, and behind the paywall, there's like a ton of awesome chicks just to make your experience with Google Sheets way.
