How can I change font color and font size without CSS in Dreamweaver CS5?

In previous versions of Adobe Dreamweaver in the properties bar you could highlight some text and just choose font size and / or color, so that it would wrap the text in old fashioned <font size=> and <font color=> tags. I still want to be able to do this non-manually, using a color picker and selection box, and without using CSS to do it, just like the earlier versions of Dreamweaver.

Anyone know how to do this or has it been removed and completely replaced by CSS?

That's easy. Just highlight the text in design view (or split view, so you can "see what you get" and code view at the same time) and either right click and go to font, styles, and colors. For more options, select the text and then select page properties at the bottom of the page to change the font, size, color, background, etc.

I have the same problem - trying to just change a phrase (not entire page) font and color. Tried suggestions given on this post but they apply to the entire page....not just the selected text. HELP!!!

Same problem here. Searching for a resolution to this issue on the web, but I guess it doesn't bother enough people(?) I tried everything I know to resolve this, short of re-installing CS4... i'm just trying to color a word red mid-sentence... it would be nice...

This is horrible! I'm having the same problem. When designing for emails I have to use HTML & not CSS. Now something as simple as changing the color of some text is going to add on so many minutes to my day. So retarded.. Sad

You have to select the text that you want to have the color changed to, then go up to format and go down to "Color...". Select the color you want and another page will pop-up and you will have to change the selector type to ID. The settings change depending on what you select so you may have to play with it a little.

insert a style code with your color in code area like this for example:

<h1 style="color:red">your text</h1>

Yes! Thank you. The high-light > format > Color trick worked like a charm.

Another solution would be to place the Properties Panel on your work space_docking it would save time_ high light the text and you can easily change font, font color and size. HERE is the link showing you how to customize your work space; it makes life much easier.
