PowerCMS Fonts and Styles question

1. How can I specify a default font to use in the editor?
2. How can I attach an external stylesheet to offer specialty styles within the editor?

Thanks!

edit the HTML Editor instance on the admin_cms/contents_update.php page, and edit the preset.

on the Styles tab, you can select your css file, and set the body style, this can be used to define the default font.

click the icon to edit the styles that are displayed in the style list to set up the styles available in the style list.

I think I'm stuck at the Create a new list, do not share option. How do I redefine the body tag? I'm just not seeing it...

Supposedly, I just created a CSS Style called redFont, and uploaded the .js file, but it's not in my styles list and I don't see where to apply it anywhere in the HTML editor. Sorry - I'm stumped! How do I change the body default font? The help function has basically told me nothing. I tried to apply this, but I'm not even sure what I'm supposed to enter and what is valid and what is not...???

type = css style, setting = font, value = Verdana, Arial

I think I completely was in the wrong area ... Ooops! I think I have it now.

No - sorry, I don't. I still don't have a Styles Toolbar within the HTML Editor.

when editing the HTML Editor preset, did you select to include the styles toolbar on the toolbar tab?

I thought I did, as I just selected one of the defaults, with full options (I thought). I'll go back and check when I can. Thanks.

Jason, this is the HTML editor within the PowerCMS interface that I'm referring to. Is there a way, during setup, to specify that you want the styles dropdown included? I didn't think there was...??? Thanks.

no, there is not a way to specify that during set up, you need to edit the instance after the CMS Files are created to add the style sheet.
