    I lost a huge article I had written in another editor due to my clumsiness of overwriting it.

    I wish I had saved it as a draft in publii, my bad,

    I have to use another editor to write my post because there I can set my own font-family, font-size, font-color, letter and word spacing and background color so that I get totally immersed in writing in the best way possible.

    For example, I prefer a thinner font like Source Sans Pro while writing than the default heavy white mac Helvetica font, which is there in the Publii editor.

    And also a little duller color than full white for the text. And also use a little greyer background as it is easier to read text on it while writing than dark black in the dark mode.

    So could you please provide support to set these if possible in the Publii editor so I can write directly in publii at my best readability settings. It will be so useful for editing the posts too.

    For example the visual wordpress editor loads the wordpress theme, so all our own font and readability settings on the site can be used in the editor too. Or we can use front-end wordpress editors like editus to write in the same readability as our theme.

    It will become a full-fledged word processor.

    Either as an option in publii or as a plugin is fine for me for this one. Thanks.

    ont-family, font-size, font-color, letter and word spacing and background color

    It makes no sense at all and goes against the idea of fast, well-designed sites. The theme should come with well-designed typography, not an editor (btw/ in the WYSIWYG editor there is an option to change the text color). Solutions such as visual builders should be a thing of the past, they dirty the code, add tons of scripts, CSS files to the site.
    Publii is a blog-oriented CMS to build super lightweight and fast websites, this is why we will never see such functionalities in our app.

    And please don’t write about it anymore, because you won’t find any other answer from me.

    Hi Bob,

    I think @NitaaiKumar may be talking about the Publii app itself rather than altering the appearance of the target website/theme from the editors within Publii app.

    Perhaps some app settings that make it easier for a user to read while he is typing inside the Publii editors.

    The look-and-feel of the output website (typography, layouts, etc) will still be governed by the respective theme settings and preserves the performance that Publii websites have.

    My 2cents.

    Cheers.

    Yes, I see now 😳 ; I read it too quickly and not very thoroughly over the phone; maybe the next year we will add “typo” options to the editors. It shouldn’t be too difficult and time-consuming, but now we have slightly different priorities.

    Thanks @shaun2k for making it more clear. So sorry I was a little ambigious @Bob. I also personally don’t like visual builders and the new wordpress blocks etc. and prefer the extremely light-weight nature of Publii. This is why we all love and use Publii I guess.

    Yes, simple “typo” options to the editors. This is exactly what I was talking of. Nothing to do with the front-end theme. I was just giving an example of the wordpress visual editor.

    Thanks @Bob for always giving hope.

    I fully understand. Will wait for next year since you both have a lot on your plate for this year.

    Please do keep it in your mind. Thanks so much again.
