How to Change Your Report's Font And Colors

This article is designed for individuals who want to customize their reports with various colors and fonts.

We simplified this process in our new Standard Reports by setting up Styles. Each Style contains font appearance details, such as Arial, 9.75pt, and style=Bold, and one is assigned to every text field inside our new Standard Reports. We will demonstrate how making changes to a single style will instantly update multiple text fields simultaneously.
