    hi. I had the same problem reported Aug 6th, on August 14th on the website 'modern art gallery', also called 'mission gallery'. (I was registered under my daughter's logon to Google, by mistake - kikikangaroo, in case you are trying to trace it). Has the glitch been resolved yet? I tried many times and different ways to save the text in the main title of the webpage but kept reverting to a different font and size. I will try again and hope for the best, hope it is fixed.

    EDITING FONT - no effect

    Everytime I try to edit the text, it won't change any font style (bold, italics..) and alignment. Also, everytime I change the content of the text, set the font color, font type & style , I have to redo it. Is it really like that?

    I hope you can help me.

    Thank you!

    When I started building my site, I could spread the text to the width of the textbox. Now I only can choose from aligning left, right or center. How can I spread the text to the width of the textbox again?

      Hi Jeroen,


      Unfortunately, I am unable to fully understand the issue you are describing.


      If you are trying to fit the text to the box, as in "stratching" the text, such option is not currently available.


      However, you could use different methods to display and spread the text inside the text box such as using the justify option, or the character spacing option.

      Click the text and choose Edit Text.

      From the window that opens, you are able to either use the justify option, to set the text position, or the character spacing option to spread the the text.


      You can read more about text options here.


      If you were referring to something else, please elaborate on what you are trying to achieve in order for us to better assist.


      Feel free to contact us again.

      Best regards, Boris

      Hi, thanks for the answer. I'll elaborate a bit, because it didn't solve the problem yet...

      On this page http://artforum.wix.com/artforum you can see that the lines of text in one textbox all have the same width.

      I want to do the same on this page: http://artforum.wix.com/artforum#!huidige-expo/c1x4j, in the first textbox under the blue divider line, but I can only choose from aligning it left, right or center... (now it's aligned left, and on the right side you can see not all the lines have the same length, which makes it look more messy)

      Can you help? Thanks!

    Hi there,

    I'm trying to change the concert date in a text box on the homepage for www.azizamiller.com. Two things happen when I click on the box: the box elongates and then I'm unable to actually highlight the text in the box in order to change the date. This wasn't a problem a week ago so I'm not sure what's wrong. . I've attached a screen capture so you can see.

      Thanks for contacting us. I apologize for the inconvenience.

      I have visited your site's editor.

      At the moment, the text box and the slideshow underneath it are located in two different boxes, that are one inside the other. This is preventing you from editing the text box.

      The easiest way to fix the issue would be to delete the boxes. Please make sure to first drag the slideshow out of its box, so it won't get deleted along with it. 

      Then, re-arrange the title and the slideshow, and add a new box if needed.

      Should you require any further help, don't hesitate to contact us again!
