You may have noticed lately that we’ve launched some great tools to help you give your docs more visual polish and a sense of identity. Publishing features like cover images and author bylines can really help frame your docs and sections, but we thought it was time to give a little more character to the text itself. Today, I’m excited to share two new changes with you: a new serif font style and new large font size.
Font Sizes & Styles can be configured at the section-level. To do so, hover over the top of your section canvas to expose the word ‘Options,’ and then click it to open the Section Options right-side panel. If you want to apply your font settings as the default for all new sections in a doc, you can toggle from ‘This Section’ to ‘Settings.’ If you also want to apply your choices to all existing sections in a doc, click the “Apply to all sections” option and proceed.
When you change your font settings, table titles (which are recognized as headers) will be updated, but text within a table will remain standard sans serif.
Please be advised that changing the fonts within a section (e.g., one paragraph with serif font, and the next with sans serif font) is not supported at this time. We also do not support custom fonts. You can still use pull quotes, block quotes, code blocks, checklists, bullets, etc. as before to style your text.
One last heads-up: With this change, we’ve also introduced some updates to spacing within sections. We’ve removed the built-in space before headings, and the built-in space before and after quote styles. You may wish to manually add spaces or horizontal lines if you find these elements looking squished.
We hope you enjoy the new font options!
