An introduction to the Font manager


This article introduces you to the Font manager and the Inherit feature in the GemPages Editor.


What is the Font manager?

In GemPages, all text-based and button-based elements have access to the Font manager, this is where you can go in and pick a font for elements’ text.

The Font manager supports Google Fonts to ensure the best loading speed and compatibility.


Inherit font

In the Editor's Font menu, the default selection is Inherit.

The Inherit option will display the text with the default font of your Shopify Theme, even if it's outside of the Font manager. To change the default font, follow our guide in this article.

If you want to add more font choices to the menu, simply follow the steps below.


Access the Font manager

Step 1: Go to the GemPages Dashboard, select one of your pages to enter via the “Edit” button, or simply create a new page.

Step 2: In the Editor, select a text-based or button-based element like Heading or Text Block.

On the left sidebar, scroll the Settings tab to look for the Typography section and click on “Font manager”.


Add font choices for an element

Step 1: In the Font manager popup panel, scroll down to browse the list of fonts, or quickly find one using the search bar.

Step 2: When you encounter a font you like, just click on it. You can select multiple fonts, however, having more than three fonts may affect your page performance.

Hit “Save” when you’re done.

All selected fonts will now be available under the Font drop-down menu of the element.
