Formatting & Styles


Font Styles

The Styles drop-down menu sets the style of any selected text. Due to accessibility requirements, the color options previously available were removed in 2018. The styles available are configured by the Web Team, and approved by the University Branding Guidelines.

Note that the Style options function as a toggle menu; to change styles, the user must first de-select the original style choice before selecting the new Style.

Font Styles

Make Image Responsive

This option ensures that the image is responsive, and completely fills the width of the section in which it is located, no matter the size of the section. However this only works on images under the "Insert/Edit Image" pop-up box.

Add Shadow to Element

This option adds a small shadow to the bottom of whatever is selected.


Image Class

To edit or add an image style (or class), the user must do so through the "Insert/Edit Image" pop-up box.  Select the image, and click the "Insert/Edit Image" button on the toolbar.  

Upon opening the pop-up box, select the "Class" drop-down box to select one of the following options:

  • (Not Set) - This default setting removes any class or style from the image.

Link Class

To edit or add a link style (or class), the user must do so through the "Insert/Edit Link" pop-up box. Highlight or select the link, and click the "Insert/Edit link" button on the toolbar.

Upon opening the pop-up box, select the "Class" drop-down box to select one of the following options:

  • (Not Set) - This default setting removes any class or style from the link.

NOTE: When changing the color of text and links, be aware of the readability of the page. Text in multiple colors or colors that are difficult to read may make your page non-accessible.
