Global Typography – Astra Theme

Typography plays the most important role in the UX of a website. Therefore, we’ve focused on giving you a number of typography options that will help you customize your fonts using the Astra theme.

Astra provides global typography options where you can make changes at one place and they will reflect globally.

From the WordPress dashboard, you can find settings under Appearance > Customize > Global > Typography

This is default typography that will apply to the entire website. Available options are –

  • Family – Make your choice of Font Family from Nunito, Times New Roman, Sans Serif, etc. for the content on your website
  • Variants – It is necessary to select font variants that you will be using on the website. Read more here
