Global Typography with Responsive Controls

Joomla Page builder makes it easy and fast to design a Joomla website. But when you are creating any section, you need to set typography and colors whenever you add any element. Which makes it a little bit irritating.

To make it easy, we have added Page Level Typography from the very beginning, which reduces some of your repeats work of setting up typography for each section on the same page. But still, you need to do this for each page.

Now, we have added Global typography with responsive controls. So you can set your typography globally. Once you set it globally, you don’t need to set it again and again on each page unless you want to override it.

Check out the documentaion page to learn more about it.

To make the Joomla form builder element more powerful, we have added 2 more field types in the element. Its HTML and Password Field Type.

Now, you can add custom content in your form with the help of the HTML field type. The field type supports all the HTML tags.
