Normalizing CSS presets, Global Stylesheets, Variable Fonts, etc

Hello friends. Still familiarizing myself with WP, FSE, Blocks, and Cwicly… to that end, a few Global CSS questions:

  1. Is it possible to edit Cwicly’s default ‘Normalize’ presets directly? Or perhaps a way to disable them and roll my own?

  2. For example… what would be the best practice in Cwicly for adding a custom font-size directly to the HTML tag?

…I like to use the 62.5% trick for managing font sizes.

  1. I want to use Roboto Flex (a variable font face), which accepts any font-weight from 100 to 1000… But Cwicly’s UI does not allow for uncommon font-weight settings (e.g. a manual entry of 550 always resets to 500 in the Cwicly block settings panel).

I’m guessing all three issues could be solved by adding a new Global stylesheet… but Cwicly already loads a bunch of stylesheets. And rather than loading even more new code to overwrite Cwicly’s defaults, I’d prefer to adjust the defaults from the start.

BTW… Do we have a comprehensive list of all the Cwicly CSS defaults?

What’s the smartest (most performant) way to tackle this stuff?


Hey there @JasonRX.

That just came up recently, feel free to vote for it and/or add your thoughts directly there:

The custom font/icon area will receive an update in the future, make sure to vote for that particular feature as well:

Maybe this can hint you a bit:

Since the global typography settings will get added to the body, you’d need to add that manually, for example via global stylesheet inside the editor.

Hope that helps.

@Marius Brilliant reply. Thank you. Great to know Cwicly is adopting such a developer-friendly tool (and attracting a user base to match). I’ll follow up in the threads you mentioned.
