Please add 12px to the standard Text Widget bar...

One aspect of the recent downgrade that I simply can't get my head around is why on earth the site developers have removed 12px font size from the list you can choose from in the main Text widget:

Is 12px not a very standard font size? I honestly can't understand why they would not allow their users to select this font size! What an oversight!!!!

What's even more bizarre is that it's availiable in the Style Developer:

However, because the Style Developer isn't consistent with its adjustments, it leaves linked text out, so that at the moment it's actually impossible to change linked text back to 12px.

Therefore, please please please can a site developer add 12px to the standard text widget menu. You may feel it's unnecessary because of the new Style Designer - but I can 100% assure you that it is necessary for some of us. It also adds a safety net should the Style Developer fail again.

Is there a site developer in Yola who is capable of quickly adding this font size to the text widget?

Hi Chris,

There is indeed a developer who can do this (and he has just told me he has added it)

Can you please try reloading your page and see if you can also see the 12 px option now?

Fantastic!!! Thank you (that was quick). Just checked and it's there now. A definite step in the right direction.

The next issue now with the Text Widget font sizing is that when you highlight text that you want to change the size of, it takes a number of attempts before it actually works. It also doesn't like it when you try to change the font size on a few lines of text at once (say a whole paragraph of text) and point blank refuses to do it.

But we are indeed having some progress....which is great news! Thanks Jeremy!!!!! (potential employee of the year).

Hi Jeremy,

While we're at it, can we please add ALL the type sizes to the text widget (not in the Style Developer, just in the options offered in the style widget). There's too large a gap between sizes offered for any real designing to go on. Thank you.

The preset sizes are great. Could you develop an input field whereby a user can type in a custom size that they may use?
