You can use Unity markup to adjust font size, colour, bold, italics etc within a guide step. 

Here's what's supported:

<b>bold</b>

<i>italic</i>

<size=x>change size</size> (though the units are confusing)

<color=#RRGGBB>change color</color>

The colour and style of the interface is designed for optimal legibility on HoloLens and is unlikley to change or allow for customization in the near term.

Voice command to skip step

It would be handy to say 'next step' to skip step rather than have to stare at the next arrow. Sometimes it can strain your neck and also you can lose where you are while completing task.
