I can't figure out how to get change highlighted text that was highlighted in previous yola format. I can't find how to that in your new style designer. (which I hate, by the way.)
How do I change this highlight leftover from last format with new designer?

Hello B*,

Undo any text effects edited using the Style Designer with the Designer turned on. Save
Turn off the Design Styler.
Open your site file and edit the HTML affecting the highlight, added orignally.

Then you can switch the style designer back on, if you wish, and edit as you would for an unaffected document.

This can be a little difficult identifying code affecting highlighting. It's well worth familiarising yourself with something like FireBug, in the long-run, which gives you a WYSIWYG view of affecting code.

I am usually a major fan, but above all sounds way too over-technical compared to the ease-of-use we have grown to love with Yola! My screen got completely stuck on this Style Designer thing, but the good news is by right-clicking 'reload', I was able to disable it and get the old version of Yola back, which I have been using for years without any major problems! Attempting to use the new format tonight, it took nearly 2 hours to create one short post as all the fonts/styles had to be recreated manually rather than just copying and pasting to ensure consistency with previous post style! If it ain't broke, please don't try to fix it, Yola! :)

I figured out by just clicking inside the text block the text tools for font, size, color, highlight etc, showed up and I could do whatever I want.

The new format did do weird things to the look of my Yola page until I finally figured out how to adjust the over paragraph text size
