The font selector appears in many different KDE applications. It lets you select the font face, font style, and font size of the text that appears in your application.
This is the leftmost selection box, and lets you choose the font face from a list of fonts on your system.
- Font style
This is the center selection box, and lets you choose the font style from the following choices:
Italic - this displays text in a cursive, or slanted fashion, and is commonly used for citations or to emphasize text.
Regular - the default. Text is displayed without any special appearance.
Bold Italic - a combination of both Bold and Italic
Bold - this displays text in a darker, thicker fashion, and is commonly used for titles of documents or to emphasize text.
This is the rightmost selection box, and lets you select the size of your text. Font size is measured in points, a standard unit of measure in typography. For more information on this, see the “Point (typography)” article on Wikipedia.
The bottom of the font selector displays a preview of text using the font settings that are currently selected. You may change this text if you wish.
