How to create a heading

Click into a cell where you want the heading, and type out the heading text. (You can also copy and paste if you already have the text in another document).

 

Next, select the heading text with the cursor, and then from the text controls toolbar, choose a Heading Style from the Heading Styles select box. You will then see the selected text update to use that heading style.

 

NB: It is really important that you use a Heading Style for a heading, as in the html markup this creates a heading tag, which has semantic meaning for search engines and screen readers. It tells them that this bit of text is more important than the other paragraph text. If you are trying to optimise your content for search engines, you will have chosen some words or a phrase that you hope might lead people to your page - and you will want to make sure that those words or phrase you have chosen feature in a proper heading tag. So don't simple create a different paragraph style or inline style and apply that, make sure you use a style from your Heading Styles list. If you don't have the one you need, then simply create a new one, and then apply that to your heading text.
