How do I make periods bigger in Google Docs?

1. Manually change the font size for each of the periods

Note: In order to apply this method, you will have two options – edit every period as it is written, or to edit all periods after you’ve finished writing the content.

The first option will require you to change the font size to the text size after every period, so in my opinion, it is better to perform the entire range of Font size changes after finishing the text.

This method only applies if you don’t have a very big text to deal with. In order to do so, follow the next steps:

  1. Inside your Google Docs page -> select each of the periods you want to modify.
  2. After the selection is done -> click on Font size button -> choose a value that suits your text.Font size edit - How to make periods bigger on Google Docs
