Ability to define text size and text styles like bold and italic
I would like to be able to specify the text size and styles by highlighting specific text in a text box. It is currently very difficult to resize text and to get various text boxes to have the same size text.
Thanks for your feedback! We’re looking into the ability to define a numerical font sizes.
As for bold, Italic… the ‘right’ way (because the team has many type-nerds) is to use the appropriate font weight for the font rather than create a faux font style. https://www.marksimonson.com/notebook/view/FakevsTrueItalics
Which option would you prefer?

I really find this a potentially strong design app, but I find it rather mind-boggling that Adobe hasn't included such fundamental typographical styles of bold & italic. C'mon, pretty please!
actually... you can add your own font and add in bold or italics.. just saw this..
yes! I agree! not having bold/italics are extremely important. we even have them on our phones for emails... let's get them on Spark!

I agree! Having these additional font options would give much more flexibility.

This definitely needs to be built out. We tried to make templates for our social media person for an event to update quotes for, but with the auto-sizing of the text, the result ended up looking extremely inconsistent and unusable.

This one is huge. Spark is very close to being the place to work within if you are not a graphic designer. When a person starts a project, they usually know what they want to do. Spark is about 90% where it needs to be. Adding the ability to change font styles (bold/italic/etc...) and also to add outlines and dropshadow would make it my go to app!
