I notice in a lot of debates people use all kinds of fancy texts/ fonts. Yet when I copy and paste my argument from word (using the same fancy texts) it's suddenly gone, all the bolds and the underlines are gone. How do I use the fancy texts?
I bear witness that there is no God but Allah and that Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) is his messenger.

Go to "rich text" to do your formatting.

DDO only has a certain number of font styles, so it's going to reset to default once you c/p. Just re-do it with any of the fonts you have in rich text.

Is it possible to use Comic-Sans?

You can use a lot of goofy fonts. I personally prefer Times New Roman because it looks bad@ss and professional.

Arial takes up more space, so it looks more smarter.

+1.

Also, use the 'paste from word' feature.

A lot of professional formatting templates actually accept Courier New as a font. It takes up about 4 times as much space 2-dimentionally, so always use that if your papers have a page requirement.

Go to "rich text" to do your formatting.

I noticed that when using Firefox, I c&p my argument from Google Docs with my formatting into the argument box, in "rich text" and it stayed. Not sure if it's a glitch, but it's worth checking out. So much easier to format in Docs.

It always spaces my text out further when I c/p from Docs into rich text. Spacing will increase by .5 or 1 and it's tricky to fix.

Same. But when I tried firefox, it worked fine, not adding anything..

Two ways. First, you can go to "Rich Text". Or use HTML tags:

<font face={insert font name of your choice}> [text] </font>
Just because you're magic doesn't mean you aren't real.
