The centered text of the Paragraph theme is not appropriate for big text blocks, so we right justify. But Update Theme does not notice this change. Screenshot shows the default paragraph theme below and attempting to update to the upper one. Can

we edit the themes?

    Looks like alignment is not one of the attributes you can set at the theme level?

    You may want to create an idea or enhancement for this. https://ideas.duda.co/

    Yes, the above is a global setting for paragraph text. I thought you were looking for that update because it's missing in the global settings. Honestly, I'm not a CSS guru either. I just learn it here and there. I also reach out for help and ask when needed. Lots of great resources can help you here in the community as well as good ole' google searches. πŸ‘οΈ Good luck!

    If they want just the headings to be centered? Sure.

    h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 { text-align: center !important; }

    You will need to go into CSS and add the text alignment CSS yourself.

    Great point Aj! Guess I was only thinking of what's available currently in the UI.

    Joe, you can test out the CSS below in your site Header. One first one is for mobile, the second is for desktop/tablet.

    I believe the below CSS will help you center all paragraph text by default if that is your objective.
    SEO & SETTINGS - HEAD HTML - HEAD HTML BOX
    <style>
    body.dmMobileBody .dmNewParagraph{
    text-align:center !important;
    }
    .dmNewParagraph {text-align:center !important;}
    </style>

    Please note that if you already have paragraph widgets that have an alignment setting that was made manually, it overrides the global setting to my knowledge.

    Did I miss anything else Aj? Or maybe there is a better way?

    Thank you, but I don't want to center the entire site. Headings are centered, and Paragraph right-justified. Does the CSS above refer to the Paragraph theme? I know almost nothing about CSS.

    Hi @Aj_Cre8 - can you provide some additional insight for Joe? Perhaps he needs some specific CSS just for the headings?

    Thanks in advance!
