Text formatting Issue
dani last edited by dani
i'd like to use 2 styles (text-formats) for title/subtitle, with only a line break (shift+enter) between them.
Title<br> (Title text-format)
Subtitle (Default text-format)
The problem is when I change the format for one line the other line also changes.
Specific formatting only applies to each line when using a full line break (enter). I'd like to find a solution for this as it would save individual editing of each title/subtitle throughout the site (there are hundreds of them).
is there a global CSS fix for this?

I think what you are looking for is a "character format". From the text in "Text Formats" -> "How to use":
"Paragraph and Headline formats can only be applied to blocks of text. Character formats can be used for words within a block of text."
From your other post I could see that you know some html and things like that, so:
The thing is in html you always need a wrapping <div>, <p> or something like that to apply a style to that specific part of the site. For paragraph textformats the texteditor always uses a wrapping <p> tag. For character formats the texteditor always uses a wrapping <span> tag which is inline, meaning it can be in a text without breaking the text.
Ok, you have hundreds of titles and subtitles. Can you please edit one of these texts and in the texteditor click the code button "<>" and copy paste the "title, subtitle" in here?

Yes that's exactly it. Inline formatting.
Example : (_title is now a character format)
<p><span class="_title">Joëlle Abed</span><br />
Comment on va expliquer ça aux hommes<br />
I didn't see the difference between text/character formatting.
Thank you very much.

Ah ok! Ok I hope you don't have to go through hundreds of pages and apply the character format :/
