Newspaper Theme: Responsive Typography for Blocks and Shortcodes

We know how difficult it is to find the right combination of font, size, line height, and spacing, to convey the right message to your visitors. To make your life easier, we are taking typography to a whole new level and introduce a Fonts Style tab into the tagDiv Composer page builder. The new typography will help you design creative websites and enhance your pages without diving in code or installing low performing font customization plugins.


Get ready to be excited by the new typography!

typography settings on blocks in Newspaper 8.7What exactly will you be able to customize on your website? Well, pretty much every title, text, description, excerpt, meta info, and the category tag. When adding a new element on your page, you are able to personalize it from the tagDiv Composer page builder. When you’ll open the customization panel, you’ll notice the Style tab is split into sections for every module that the block contains.

For each one individually, you can change settings such as:

  • Font size
  • Font (Google Fonts, Font stacks)
  • Font style (Italic, Oblique, Normal);
  • Font weight (thin, extra light, light, normal, medium, semibold, bold, extra bold, black);
  • Text-transform (uppercase, capitalize, lowercase, none/normal).
  • Letter spacing

If you’re unsure of what a certain option does, you can find out more by reading about the basics of Typography here.

The Newspaper theme supports all kinds of CSS size units such as px, em, pt, and %. Make sure that you always type in the unit after the value, otherwise, nothing will change. The same goes for the space between letters option. Furthermore, you can add custom fonts to your project. To add a new one just go to Theme Panel> Theme Fonts> Custom Font Files, and follow the instructions.

Your website’s typography will become a powerful tool ready to make everything more interesting for your audience.

If you don’t like the result, you’ll be glad to know you can start over without affecting your website as everything is reversible! Just click on the ‘x’ icon (Clear font settings) and the settings will be restored to default.

  1. Do I have to manually change the font size for every device in the TD composer or the composer will take the value of desktop font size and decrease it accordingly depending on the device?

    Suppose, I selected a font size of 40px for a heading for the desktop using TD composer. Will the font size on phone decrease automatically or it is only possible by manually selecting the font for each device?

    If this functionality is provided, Please let me know. And if not, I would love to see it in near future.

    • Hi Pratiek,

      If you set up a font value for a desktop device, this value will be applied on the other devices too. You have to manually change the font size on other devices than desktop, accordingly to your vision. Please send us an email at or open a new topic on if you need technical assistance. Our blog section is not assigned to the Customer Support Center. Thank you for understanding!

  2. hello, how do i put an image and a title in a title box on my site: has 3 gray blocks that already came on the demo site I installed but I can’t make the changes.

    • Hi,

      In that case, you will need to edit your page using the TD Composer which allows customizing the template as you wish. Unfortunately, the blog is not assigned to the support team.
