Aperture Trick #27 – Change Fonts In Books

While it may appear that you cannot change fonts or fonts sizes in Aperture’s book layouts, you can. You can select any font or font size you want for any text in an Aperture book. Here’s how:

Select the text you want to change and right-click (or Control-click) that text. A fly-out sub menu (also called a drop down box) will appear. Scroll down this menu to FONT> SHOW FONTS – A fonts box will open on the right side of the screen. In this box you can change the font’s size, color, etc.

You can go to the size box and type in any size you want or you can use the provided font sizes. Be sure to use only whole numbers. In this box, you can also change the vertical alignment of the highlighted text, and the button in the upper left (T) creates a drop down shadow.

This was a trick we’d already figured out but so had a bunch of our readers and contributors including Jeff Weinberg, Tom Williams, Tom Utterback, Jay Tufton and Derrick Story. Thanks folks and keep em coming!
