About GemPages Global Style
GemPages Global Style feature is designed to help you define a consistent style for specific sections/ elements across your webpage.
The more pages we create, the more difficult it is to maintain the same level of design consistency. Using Global Style for your pages can save you time while giving your website a professional appearance.
Global Style Preset
The Global Style preset comes with a wide range of design settings that allow you to customize and save in minutes. After that, you can apply them to any part of your website. Once a preset has been applied, the page design is controlled by the preset.
For example, to achieve the same style for all Heading throughout your page, you can customize the preset settings instead of manually editing each heading.
Whenever you modify and save the preset settings, it will be automatically reflected on all associated pages. Thus, it will make your work faster and ensure consistency in style.
Let’s say you want all your Heading to have an underlined and italic type. Simply update the Text style on the preset and hit "Update." Your associated pages’ Headings will be modified accordingly.
Besides changing styles on the preset settings, you still have the option to customize each element individually by the element settings, as previously.
Using GemPages, you will have three options to create a new preset:
- From Live theme: The available styles will be imported from the Homepage of your published theme to create a new preset.
- From a specific page: You will have the option to customize the page as you want. Next, the available styles on this page will be imported to create a new preset.
- Create a new custom preset: Create a new preset from predefined styles.
