Apparently I am missing something "again". I create a new "Sermon" in Sermon Builder or in docs->new->sermon....  but I cannot change the font and color of the title???

What am I missing.... again????

Thanks

Sermon titles don't follow the same formatting rules as the rest of the document due to the way the content is stored.  

The other areas of a Sermon Builder document are known as "rich text" and do support formatting, but the title is a "plain text" box which is easier to work with when it comes to storing that information in several other areas around the rest of the program.

It would actually be a fairly significant amount of work for our dev team to allow formatting on the title line of Sermon Builder.  It's something we can consider for the future but also just wanted to be transparent that we won't be able to adjust this quickly.

Another option is to set the title of the sermon within the Sermon Manager feature and then load the document.  From there, if you clear out the title line and then just allow the next block of the "Heading 1" area to act as your title, that of course can be formatted to your desire.  If this document was then exported to Preaching Mode, the blank title doesn't appear, however, within Sermon Manager, the title you previously set is still in place.

Thanks for writing in about this.  It has led to some good internal discussions about what we could do in this area to improve in the future.

Thanks Austin.... I'll try to remember this.
