Text Formatting

Quick launch summary

You can now adjust text size, color, font, spacing, and more while typing in a text box in Google Sites. This significantly expands control over how individual words, paragraphs, pages, and sections look. We hope this will help you make your site look and feel just the way you want it to. If you do not yet see the feature see the information below, especially for Google Workspace sites.

Rollout pace

In a numbered or bulleted list the formatting can be changed to title, heading or subheading

  1. One

  2. Two

See the info from Steegle

Single line spacing
is now possible
in newly created sites
by using shift+enter.

I would prefer that single spacing be the default and double spacing be optional and I have sent feedback to that effect.

The new formatting options are being added to new sites individually. The rollout continues. If you don't have the new features you just need to be patient.
