Change the Default Font
About this Tutorial
You know that every font in your sheet is going to be Oswald Comforter, Aeriel new, or Comic San. If you're a crazy person But you don't want that. So what you do is you change the format theme to change literally this. What challenges await? Well, this is not transferrable to other sheets. So once we do it to this sheet, we have to do it to every sheet we ever wanna use, which is not a terrible problem to have.
It doesn't change the color background. We can change a lot of the colors we use in charts sort of some basic features. And the changes we make are only on the custom theme, which I'll show you in a second. I talk a lot about my favorite fonts cuz Aeriel is a terrible font to have to look at all day every day.
If you're using Sheets 10 hours a day, then check out better sheets.co. I'm giving a lifetime access to all of my tutorials. We go deep into what are the, my favorite fonts and why they are, and you'll be able to even add more fonts. I tell you about this cool thing where you can. Actually go to and add more fonts than you ever imagined.
So how do you change the default font is you go to format. And over here you have themes. So you go format, theme, and you can click on any of these existing themes. Let me move my face over here. And there's some like really nice themes here to choose from. But you have your own particular font you want.
So you just click customize and what it is gonna do is it's gonna create a custom one. We can actually go standard customize, and now we can change the font here, aerial. We want to change it to courier new and we could change all these colors. These colors are for like charts, chart background. You just can't change your background color.
But it also does mention that edits to this will be saved over the existing custom. So you don't have multiple custom themes, you only have one theme. You just wanna change this. Click done. And now if I go here and I command slash to unformat it, it unformat two, the courier new, which is my default font now.
So now I don't ever have to change this font. It's actually the default. And that's how you change a default. It's not transfer again, it's not transferrable to any other sheets you make. It doesn't change the background color. If you wanna learn about why cheating the background color is really important, go to Better sheets.co.
I talk a lot about just making sheets experience better because we spend time in Google Sheets and you can make a very nice background that's a little easier on the eyes by just doing FB FB F eight that makes it look like paper. That's a little teaser for you. Check out better sheets.co. And that's what it looks like.
Nice paper, better sheets.co for more tutorials, free tutorials there. But also pay for full access, full lifetime access. I'll never charge you again for all the videos that exist. Thanks. Bye.
