Dev Diary not today, but Wednesday/Thursday

Hey Weavers,

We’ve been super busy making some big changes (based on all your feedback)… because of these changes, this week’s video is going to be on Wednesday/Thursday — Sorry for the delay!

In the meantime, keep the questions coming!

Dan & Co.


While I always look forward to seeing what is being revealed, it is far important to accomplish the task at hand. A useful, as bug free as possible, first release of Elements. Carry on!

Does the Elements theme studio provide any means of defining a fallback font when using custom fonts? For instance, using Arial while waiting for a specific custom font to download?

I’m assuming Elements is using font-display: swap when loading custom fonts. Is there anyway to provide font size-adjust values to help with the cumulative layout shift when the fallback font is swapped for the custom font. It would be lovely to have a way of matching the font size within Elements theme studio instead of having to use out-of date-web tools and do the math ourselves.

I also updated my previous post with a couple more questions and some additional clarification.

This weeks Dev Diary is now available here :tada:
