Customize Typography On Astra

Customizing Typography

To start, select Global from the customizer menu.

Next, choose Typography.

In typography on Astra, there are two options, base typography, and headings.

Changes made here are global. Global means across your whole site.

Base typography and headings

Base Typography

Base typography is the default text for your blog posts and pages.

You can change the default font. Click on the font family tab and make your selection.

Default font

The default size for your blog text is 16. Use the up and down arrows to change the size.

I recommend changing this to 20. The blog text is difficult to read on mobile devices.

Setting your family font to 20 ensures mobile users have a great user experience.


Use the Weight option to change the thickness of the letters.


Text Transform is for capitalization.

Line Height is the space between lines in your paragraphs.

The headings option is the default size for headings on your website.


You can have the same font, weight, text transform, and line height for all headings. Or you can set them individually.

For individual headings, scroll down. Heading 1 is the blog title, and headings 2 to 6 are your sub-headings.
