The Global Design section lets you make global changes that affect your entire site. You can customize your site's text, buttons, images, background, and navigation layout from this menu. This allows you to quickly and efficiently make sweeping visual changes, reducing design time and keeping your site's style consistent across pages.


Click Design on the left menu to open the Global Design panel.GlobalDesign1.png

Global Text

This section lets you control global text styles, both for paragraph and title widgets of all sizes (H1 to H6). Change the font size, style, color, and other edits that will affect the text for all future paragraph and title widgets.


Global Buttons

This section lets you control global button styles for the button widgets on your site. Change the button design and color or make edits to the button text style.


Global Images

This section lets you control global image styles for the image widgets on your site. Choose an image using the Choose and Place Images menu and make edits, such as adding a border style, rounded corners, or shadow effects.

Global Rows

This section allows you to define the global row design in terms of background color, Default row spacing and default column spacing. Edits that will be made on individual rows will override the global row settings.


Site Background

This section lets you control global background styles for your site. You can choose a color or image as your global site background.

Site Layout

This section lets you control the layout of your site's navigation on tablet and mobile. 


Changes that you make to specific widgets or pages will override these global styles. For this reason, we recommend that you first decide on a global style, and afterwards make customizations to parts of your site that you want to stand out or look different than the rest.

Changing your navigation's layout often affects the behavior of your header and sometimes the rest of your site. If your header suddenly looks incorrect after changing the layout, try a different layout.
