In this YouTube video I show you how to make adjustments to regular text in the Wix editor. There are great text tools such as leading and tracking* – Wix calls leading "Line Spacing" and it calls kerning "Letter Spacing" and those settings can be found in the Text Settings panel that opens up when you click on text to edit it.

That means the consumer version will still be up until August of 2019. So why not keep using it? Here's why: Keep using Google+ for your Business websites' SEO: I always tell my Website Design and SEO clients to create a Google+ Business page and account for their business, and post regularly. Why? Because it's basically
