Global Typography


One of the new features in 7.6 is the ability to set global typography settings. When I first saw this I wasn’t sure what to make of it as it seemed a little redundant, but I was wrong.

Modifying a heading or body text

One of my pet peeves with earlier versions was the need to select the same font family of a heading in order to vary the font weight. This is no longer the case if you set up weight styles. Just create a global style that matches your requirement — Heading-100 — for the heading font with a font weight of 100. The same applies to the body text when you can now have stylized “small” text or lead-in text.

Extending styles

This feature lets you build a variety of global settings and is a huge time saver. If you have a stylized section header that uses a lighter color, with uppercase font, you can now create and apply a global style and use it everywhere. While this is possible in custom CSS, it is such an easy-to-use interface and helpful for those that may not be familiar with CSS. You still have to write custom style for positioning, rotation, and other “non-standard” settings.

  • Where to find all the new features in 7.8

    Avada 7.8 introduces several new and amazing features, but they are scattered. Hopefully, this article will help you find them.

    The Avada 7.7 update normalizes the custom color interface with the custom typography interface.

  • Avada 7.6 is a game-changer

    The Theme Fusion team released 7.6 a few days ago and while each release is touted to be the best ever or remarkable, they rarely are. I think 7.6 is an honest-to-goodness game changer.
