Instead of a larger and smaller button, I wish there was a number to say what size text. Making a paragraph larger doesn't always work. The first line is larger the rest stays small. There's no way to tell how large or small the text really is. The old Netscape edit had numbers and it was much easier to use. A size 14 was a size 14, you didn't have to guess. This is something I'd really like you to change.

Just to clarify, is this in the Website Composer window?

Problem is, a "size 14" to you, can be different for another viewing the website, and for those who view it on mobile, etc.

The only reasonable solution (imo) is +/- the users default, no guessing involved. Composer is not designed for print-media only web-media.

That said, I'm not about to dictate the UX here enough to wontfix, but I do feel strongly.

Valid Enhancement Request. Confirming. Although these days the font size should be done via CSS as in Blue Griffon.
