The following example demonstrates how to embed Google Font code and declare custom heading classes that override the current stylesheet.

Step 1: Choose a Google font

  1. Visit the Google Fonts site and choose the font family that you want to use.

  2. Copy the generated code that is to be embedded in the <head> section of the page and paste it temporarily into a text editor.

    • Embed Font code
    • CSS Rule
  3. Add the font-family rule to each heading class, enclosing the heading classes in a <style> tag.

    This is the code that will be pasted into Page Builder.

    <style>
       h1 {color: teal; font-family: 'Khand', sans-serif; }
       h2 {color: teal; font-family: 'Khand', sans-serif; }
       h3 {color: teal; font-family: 'Khand', sans-serif; }
    </style>
    

Step 2: Add the code to the page

  1. In the Admin sidebar of your store, go to Content > Elements > Pages.

  2. Find the page where the font is to be available and open it in edit mode.

  3. Scroll down and expand the Content section.

  4. In the Page Builder panel, expand Elements and drag an HTML Code placeholder to a row, column, or tab set on the stage.

    Use the red guideline to position the divider either before or after another content container in the row, column, or tab set.
