Using Custom Fonts in Elementor

When you go to your Elementor and select any text widget, for example, select a heading, in the Edit Heading area on the left go to Style. Under Typography search for the whiskey  girls font and you’ll notice it is under custom fonts (03:34)

Depending on the type of custom font you uploaded, you may or may not be able to change the weight, transform, style and other settings in your font. (03:55)

In the case of the whiskey girls font for example; you can’t transform it to lower case because it’s only in uppercase by default.

However, you can change the style because you uploaded both the normal and oblique styles.

You can also make some other changes like the color and size of the font.

If you want to apply your custom font to other sections you can do so by selecting the widget, go to Style and under Typography search for whiskey girls and select it, you can change the color to your preference.

Another way to apply the font to other widgets is to right-click that previously edited widget and select copy style then go to the next widget and paste style. (04:46)

You can apply these changes to all the sections on your website by copying and pasting the style.

And you can also use the same process to add another custom font and apply it in different sections on your site, you’re not limited to only one custom font.
