🍰 Highlight essential content on the page

Updated: Nov 16, 2020

In this article, I want to give you some tips on highlighting content on your modern SharePoint pages.

For this 🍰 of cake, you should be familiar with:

✔ Create and use modern SharePoint pages, Microsoft support website

✔ Sections and columns in SharePoint pages, Microsoft documentation

Imagine you have lots of text and content on the page. Some of it is more important than others. You should highlight the relevant information so that it is immediately noticeable.

To make use of highlighting content, you have different options.

1️⃣. Use font styles to highlight your content

You can play with font styles to highlight text on your page. But be aware: don’t use more than two font sizes – you already have different font sizes in the navigation and menus of the SharePoint site.

2️⃣. No space for boredom - use section layouts and backgrounds

With section layouts, you can define sections, columns, and section backgrounds. It helps you to delimit the content logically from one another.

Here you can see some examples of how a page can look:
