Default font size for regular page text – can I change it?

    Dear Andrew,
    I am using WordPress with the Ultra theme. When I cut and paste regular text from an MS Word document into a web page the version of the text in the page appears in a standard font size. I assume it a default font size. Is it an attribute of the Ultra theme or of WordPress? If the former is there a way to modify the default font size?

    Hi John

    Thanks for your question. The font size is set by the theme’s stylesheet. If you’re using Ultra Premium you can head over to Appearance > Customize > Theme Design > Content and change the Text Size setting there. Alternatively, in Ultra Free you can install a plugin called Simple Custom CSS from Plugins > Add New, just search for Simple Custom CSS in the search bar top right. Once activated, go to Appearance > Custom CSS and insert the following:

    /* Content Font Size */
    #primary label,#primary button,#primary input,#primary select,#primary textarea,#primary p,#primary ul,#primary ol,#primary table,#primary dl,#primary address,#primary pre,.paging-navigation,.page-links,.site-main .comment-navigation,.site-main .post-navigation {
        font-size: 14px;

    14px is the default, you can change that value as required.

    Hope that helps.
