How to Increase the Font Size for an Entire Document in Google Docs

Google Docs contains many of the formatting options that are available in other word processing programs and, chances are, you may have already used a few of them in your existing document. But you may have found that a current font size is too small, or you are working on a document created by someone else, and you would like to increase the font sizes that the document contains.

But if you haven’t had to change an existing font size before, then you may not be sure how to do it. Additionally, if the document contains multiple different fonts, then you may be looking for a way to increase all of those font sizes without the need to select them each individually. Fortunately Google Docs has a tool that allows you to universally increase the font sizes in your document.
