Element’s style settings

PageFly provides powerful styling options for all elements. To illustrate how they work, we will look at 2 examples with Image and Paragraph elements. In version 3.11.0, PageFly also releases a new styling option: Effect (Opacity and Shadow Effect)


Styling parameters


Content color – this parameter allows you to choose the color for the content, which can be text or icon.

Styling color now can give you the option to choose 4 predefined Global Styling colors: Primary, Secondary, Foreground, Background. You can edit them in Global Styling Settings

If you choose any other color different from 4 Global Styling colors, the Color type will automatically change to Custom.

Note: Some elements like “Image” don’t have this parameter.


Parameters in this group allow you to control the spacing around and inside the element. In the Padding and Margin parameters, each of them has 4 empty boxes that allow you to fill in the value for 4 sides: top – right – bottom – left.

You can read the details for this in the Edit Spacing article.


You can change the font family here.

Font family has 3 predefined Global Styling fonts: Primary, Secondary, Tertiary. You can edit them in Global Styling Settings.

You can add more fonts by opening the Font Manager.

With every font, you can configure the following parameters:

The More Settings button gives you 4 extra options:
