Your font scheme determines the font types, sizes and colors of the different areas of your site including your major headings, minor headings, the body text and more.

 

You can see what font you are currently using either by double-clicking the text box to open the Text Editor Toolbar, or in the Design section of your site.

 

To change your font scheme: From the left side of the Editor, click the Design icon > click Fonts > select from the existing font schemes or click Customize Fonts to create your own. 

 

Note: We have compiled a list of fonts which encourage you to use for a better site performance and a smoother display as your page initially loads. To view the list, click here.

      Hi,

      If you are referring to the grid gallery on your "GALLERI" page, then you can change and view the font scheme selected by clicking on the gallery-->settings (you can also directly click on change style)-->change style-->edit style (or personalize this gallery) and you will be able to see the font scheme selected. Shown in the screenshot below:

      If you have any further questions, please let us know.

       

      Kind regards,

    Can I download a font from Wix to match that in a non-linear editor? If I want "Soho Condensed" from the Wix website, how can I also use this font in a video in Adobe Premiere Pro?

      Hi,

      Please note that all the fonts used on Wix are free to download around the net. Unfortunately, you cannot download them directly through Wix.

      Feel free to search the web for free fonts downloading sites offering Soho Condensed, such as this one.

      Hey  adamkrivanek,

       

      At this stage we have no way of offering this possibility- You can upload the text with your own font via JPG or HTML code for example. 


      We have recently added 30 new fonts!

      Please note that more fonts are available via the Texty App.

    Changing Default Color Of Text

    How do I change the default color of text on the website. It's very annoying to have to change the color of every peice of text so it doesn't blend in with the background.

     

    Thanks in advance

    Hi there,

     

    Whenever I double click a text box to edit the the text (even adding a link to text etc), the moment the cursor appears all formatting is automatically removed and supplanted by the generic "Design" font for "Body M" or whatever font scheme was used when the page was first built.  In fact, I don't think this ever happened until November/December and I've not been able to effectively edit my page since.  Is there a way to turn this off?  This unwanted feature has been the cause of quite a lot of frustration and wasted time.

     

    Please Help!!

      I'm also having problems with text automatically re-sizing itself anytime I double click a box and the cursor appears. This sometimes causes an awful chain reaction of other objects re-sizing or moving and before I know it, I just have to close the editor and leave the page alone without making the changes my site needs.

      Hi,

      Thank you for contacting Wix support.

      I'm sorry to hear you are experiencing difficulties.

       

      Has this text has been copied to a Wix text box from another source?

      Please make sure that when copying text to Wix you first need to paste the text in a notepad document and then copy again and paste to Wix to avoid formatting conflicts.

       

      If this is not the case, please notify us immediately.

      Yotam,

       

      Thanks for the advice! Unfortunately, I know for certain that most of the text experiencing problems could not be explained by cutting and pasting text from another source.  For example, my name appears in the header of site and this was reverse engineered directly from the text box in the template - this is one of the text boxes experiencing problems.  I really liked the spacing of the text and the color scheme from the template, but had altered the font and size of the template text to meet the formatting needs of the characters in my name.  Most of the other text on my pages I generated on the fly by typing directly into the WIX editor.  I'll continue to think about the origins of my other text, some of which was definitely a copy and paste job. Moving forward, I will definitely follow the process you delineated and use the intermediary of the text pad when I copy and paste. However, this solution does not explain the phenomenon as it occurs in all cases. As I try and edit the page, I tried to create a new text box exactly similar in size, font, and style to the text which is auto reformatting itself and I cannot generate a font which is exactly the same size as my current display (I'm referring to my name in the header which was created directly in the editor).  If you have any other ideas or solutions please let me know.

      Here is a screenshot of chrome (I opened the editing box on both my name in the upper left corner and my welcome header in the middle of the page and the text formatting was automatically reset):

      Based on your advice, I tried firefox instead of Chrome and recall that I began building this site in firefox but switched to chrome later on because firefox's rendering in the editing environment was bulky and slow on my machine. Having edited some portions of the site in Chrome and some in Firefox might be confusing the editor. Let me know if you think this is a possibility, and whether or not there's a simple solution to this issue.  When using Firefox, I found that the text does not automatically reformat, but the text box arbitrarily changes size when double clicking a text box and this alters the positioning of other elements on the page. Here's a photo:

      The text shown is not the only text which arbitrarily expands the borders of its text box when I double click to edit the text and a chain reaction of moved elements occurs. After this, I have to meticulously resize elements and adjust carefully measured spacing between elements anytime I want to link text or change a word.  I tried clearing the cache of both browsers, but it did not influence the problem at all. What do you think now that you have more information?

       

      Thanks for all your help,

      Also, In a different forum about site loading and performance a Wix rep stated about my site "The best solution would be to use browser text and not simple text."  Could you elaborate on this idea, I'm not sure what this comment means or how I would implement it.

      Sorry to see that you are still having this issue, as you can see that I have not been able to recreate the issue,

       

       

      Please try to use a different computer, or uninstall the browsers and then re install them.,
