Before editing text formats, you will need to determine the set of fonts used. Content Design System Manager (CDSM) supports fonts from Google Fonts, Adobe Fonts, and your own fonts in WOFF format.
Note: custom fonts are not available in the free version of Setka Editor.
To add new fonts, open any text format from the list on the left and go to Manage Fonts. Then select fonts from Google Fonts, Adobe Fonts, or upload your own font. New font will appear in the Font family dropdown, inside the text format.

Editing text formats
Use the Text formats menu in the left to configure desired formats and fonts.
When creating a style from scratch, some default text formats will be available:
- Paragraph — simple text. Uses the <p> tag in an article HTML code.
- Extra Large Header, Large Header, Medium Header, Small Header — headers of different sizes. Uses tags from <h1> to <h4> respectively, in an article HTML code.
- Small Text — caption text. Uses the <p> tag in an article HTML code.
Image captions can also be configured. One of the existing text formats is selectable for them. Captions use the Small Text by default.
Adding a text format
Click Add text format to create the new one. Configure the following:
To change font size, go to Text formats ->[Format] -> Size. Font size is set in pixels (px).
To change font weight, go to Text formats ->[Format] -> Weight. Where 400 is a normal weight and 700 is a bold text.
To change font weight, go to Text formats ->[Format] -> Line height. The line height is set as a percentage (%) of the font height.
Reordering text formats

Each text format except "Paragraph" can be dragged up or down, changing the order this way:
Rearranged text formats will appear in the editor after saving the style:
Custom bold and italic
Sometimes it’s not enough just to highlight the text as bold or italic. You can use custom styles for bold and italic in such cases. This is a classic typography technique from books, magazines and newspapers.
Stylized bold and italic give more freedom to create beautiful and finely readable content.
To configure custom formatting for bold and italic, go to Text formats -> [Format] -> Advanced bold & italic. Activate the Custom appearance for Bold text or Custom appearance for Italic text item respectively:
Custom settings for mobile devices
Content Design System Manager (CDSM) provides style previews for different device types. To switch between them, use Desktop / Tablet / Mobile buttons at the top.
Text formats can also be customized for mobile devices. E.g., if the font looks too large on a smartphone, it can be downscaled or even changed for another one.
To set font settings for smartphones and tablets:
1. Go to Text formats -> [Format] -> Screen size -> Tablet / Mobile.
2. Activate Custom appearance for mobile screen or Custom appearance for tablet screen, respectively.
3. Styles for smartphones and tablets will be the same as in the Desktop section. But any of their parameters can be fine-tuned:
Additional decoration settings

To set appearance for links, go to Text formats -> Links. links can be:
- Underlined (Underline style).
