March 1



March brings a whole bunch of reliability improvements and fixes, as well as a great new feature in our Font picker. As always we also have some amazing new content.

Font Picker

We now have a Font picker so you can choose your own fonts - we’ve started with some essential baseline features but we will be adding to these in later releases. If you look at the Text Properties menu you’ll see the new Font section which shows the currently selected font (or the one in which the text cursor is placed) as well as the size of the font - use the slider to adjust or enter a value. Tap on the arrow and the full menu slides in…   The top section displays the fonts contained in your document with the current selection highlighted. Then there’s a section containing some of the most Popular fonts for easy access. Scroll down to see the bottom section - More fonts  which lists various font families - Serif, Sans Serif, Handwriting, Headline etc. Tap on the arrows to reveal the fonts in their families - and tap again to see the variants supplied with a particular font.
