How To Make Periods Bigger On Google Docs

Since punctuation marks typically have small font sizes and are therefore easy to misread, it is helpful to increase the size of the punctuation marks in your document to enhance their visibility.

The most often used punctuation mark is the period, also referred to as a full stop. The period can be used in a variety of contexts. In order to signal that a sentence has concluded, it is first used at the end of sentences. Additionally, it is used following abbreviations like Mr. and Ms.
