    • select it
    • press the key binding (ctrl+space by default) to open font selector
    • select the font you want to stylize your text with using the GUI
    • the stylized text gets copied to your clipboard
    • press ctrl+v to paste the stylized text wherever you want!
  • To close prettype, just press the exit key (esc by default).

  • CLI usage to configure key binding and exit key:

     $ prettype [-h] [-b key1 key2] [-e key]

    You can always use $ prettype -h command to open this help message:

     optional arguments:
     -h, --help            show this help message and exit
     -b key1 key2, --binding key1 key2
                         Set a key binding for triggering prettype font
                         selector. Example: $ prettype -b ctrl space
     -e key, --exit_key key
                         Specify a key which stops the keyboard listener, when
                         pressed. Example: $ prettype -e esc
