Choosing the font for your directory
There are some font and font size adjustments you can make for your PDF directory. Any font changes you make will not apply to the font size you'll see on the Online Members' Website or Mobile Apps.
Change Font Type
There are a few font-type options you can choose for your PDF Directory.
IMPORTANT: Changing the font type applies to your entire PDF Directory. It does not apply to the Online Members' Website or Mobile Apps. Font size does NOT apply to the entire directory. See more information below.
IMPORTANT: Font size will only apply to the Roster, Birthday, and Anniversary pages. The font size does not apply to any of the following: Cover page, Pastor's Letter, Activity pages, Photos pages, or Photo pages with details. Font size change will not affect the Online Members' Website or Mobile App.
REMEMBER: Any font
size change will apply only to the Roster, Anniversary & Birthday pages.
To make an update to the font type, go to Share PDF, then click the PDF Options blue button.
You will see a Font Options dropdown of font types where you can make your font type choice.
Once you have changed your font type, go back to Share PDF to generate your directory again in order to see the font changes.
Change Font Size (Roster, Birthday & Anniversary Pages Only)
To adjust the font size, click on Share PDF at the top of your screen, then click the PDF Options button. Here, you can choose your font type as well as the size to better fit your needs. Once you've chosen your new font size, be sure to generate your PDF again under Share PDF so it reflects the most recent updates.
Create a Large Print Directory
Would you like to create a large print directory for your elderly members? When choosing what font and size you want, choose between 16-18 as the font size, and Helvetica as the font type. Using these font type and font size settings will provide an easy-to-read directory for your members!
You can generate what you need for your large print readers and then change your settings back to normal sizes and generate again for your typical PDF Directory.
Example: Arial, 16pt
Use Unicode for non-English PDF directories
If you want to use non-English text in your directory, you will want to use the font "Unicode" under Share PDF, then click the PDF Options button.
Please see this help document for more information: Non-English Speaking Users - Instant Church Directory
Unicode only applies to your PDF Directory and does not affect the Online Members' Website or Mobile Apps.
