I want to format the default style for text links—currently the color is blue & are underlined.
Is this possible? And if yes, how can I do it?
Yes, you can change your default styles in Google Web Docs.
Follow these steps:
Step 1: open a blank Google Doc.
Step 2: create your desired style with a sample text.
Step 3: click the style menu and click the arrow next to the style you’d like to change. Click the link to update that style to your selection. Once you’ve saved all the styles you’d like, navigate to styles menu → Options and click the link Save as my default styles. After you’ve set you’ve set your new default styles.
Now, each time you start a document, your new styles are default. You can also open the styles menu → Options at the bottom and select the option to use your own default styles. If you’d like to go back to the default styles, click the styles menu again and click the Options link at the bottom of the menu to access that control.
I came across the same problem. All you need to do is alter the colour of the text the same way you would normal text.
Google doesn't seem to mind if it's a link or not.
