Responsive Heading Typography

The Responsive Typography options allow you to control responsiveness for all headings and fonts. This helps your layout look more proportionate on smaller sizes.

Step 1 – Adjust the Responsive Typography Sensitivity by dragging the slider to fit your needs. 0 will disable responsive typography, and 1 is maximum responsiveness.

Step 2 – Adjust the Minimum Font Size Factor by dragging the slider left or right to control the multiplying value of the minimum font size. For example, if set to 0, then there is no minimum font-size. If set to 1 then the minimum font-size will be the same as the font-size of the element. If set to 2 then the minimum font-size will be double the initial font-size of the element.

Inline Editing Typography Options

There are also typography options found in Fusion Builder Live, when using the Inline Editor.

When you select any text in the front end builder, the Inline Editor appears above or below it. The very first option on the menu is Typography. On the Settings tab, you can adjust the settings of that particular paragraph of text, or you can also head to the Family tab, where you can change the font family and variant, for just that particular text selection.

Font Face Rendering

With Avada 6.1, we improved the font performance feature for Font Face Rendering. Located at Avada > Theme Options > Performance > General, you will find the Font Face Rendering option. Here you can now chose “Swap All” for faster font rendering with possible flash of unstyled text (FOUT), “Block” for clean rendering but a longer wait time until first paint, or “Swap Non-Icon Fonts”, which will use a mix of the first two methods (“swap” for  text fonts and “nlock” for icon-fonts).

To allow you to be fully compliant with the GDPR, you can choose to download Google and Font Awesome Fonts locally on to your server, or you can set the option to CDN to use the Google and Font Awesome CDNs.
