Color single words in a paragraph

  • I am used to changing the color of single words with span – this doesn’t seem easy to do with GP. When I change the color, it changes the whole paragraph. Alternatively, it transforms the block into HTML, which doesn’t make things easier.

  • Hi there,

  • That works, thanks!

  • Glad to hear that!

  • I need to increase the font-size of this word. Do you have an idea how to do that? I would normally add a class to a span tag.

  • If you are using GB’s highlight option then it will add gb-highlight class to the span, you can use the customizer > typography > add typography > custom selector or use custom CSS to set font-size for the span.

  • I have GB installed, but I’m not sure if I’m using it correctly. I only have one highlight option available.

  • This is the GB Headline block:

    Highlight any text within the Headline block, and you will see this option:
