I think you’ve uncovered a bit of a bug that I’m not sure has been reported previously e.g. if you change the size/font of the whole paragraph in the editor the change stops at the first marked word.

What version of Xerte are you using? If you see a ‘styles’ option under optional properties add that and then enter the following:


#targetHolder input[readonly], #targetHolder .target.correct {

/*change the correct answer style*/

   /* color: green;*/

    font-weight: bold;

    font-size: 16px !important;

    /*font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;*/




/*font for the whole panel*/

font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;



I’m not sure if some of that css will be removed in this email so I’ll paste as an image too.


The bits that are /*commented out*/ like /*color:green;*/ could be uncommented to change those values too.

Subject: [Xerte] font issue


Hi al,


I'm using the default font. In a gap Fill - Fill in Blank and Drop Down the correct answer will be shown in green. The font is however so thin (default size 14) that you can hardly see the colour of it. I tried to make it bold or big, but that has no effect on the way the fill text is displayed. 

Should I use another default font/ What would you advise? And how do I change that?


Thanks in advance,

Elly Langewis
