Hi,

A friend of mine just purchased a mac book pro for her business. It came with standard software installed such as mail client, etc.  I added a signature for her email by going to mail, preferences, signature. She wants to change color of text, change default font. I am not sure how to do this as I have never worked on a Mac before. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I assume you are using Mac OS X Mail, the standard email client.


To add colors, text formatting and images to a signature in Mac OS X Mail:

Select Mail | Preferences... from the menu.
Go to the Signatures tab.
Highlight the signature you want to edit.
Now highlight the text you want to format.
To assign a font, select Format | Show Fonts from the menu and select the desired font.
To assign a color, select Format | Show Colors from the menu and click the desired color.
To make text bold, italic or underlined, select Format | Style from the menu, followed by the desired font style.
To include an image with your signature, use Spotlight or Finder to locate the desired image, then drag and drop it to the desired location in the signature.
Go to the Composing tab.
Make sure Rich Text is selected under Message Format: for formatting to be applied to signatures. With Plain Text enabled, you will get a plain text version of your signature.
