Using Headlines

A Headline element is a piece of text used as a headline on your page.

Headlines help you organize your page into sections.

Don't confuse Headlines with Paragraph elements, which serve as the page's regular-sized text.

Your most important and largest Headline will set the topic for the page, and should be at the top.

Adding the Headline element to a page

  • Hover your mouse where you wish to put your new element, and watch for the + icon to appear
  • Click the icon to reveal the Elements panel
  • Click the Headline element, and it will be added to your page

Moving and editing the Headline element

  • If you want to move the Headline, click the on its toolbar and drag it with your mouse to the new location.
  • To edit your Headline, double click on it, and a formatting toolbar will appear that you can use to edit text size, formatting and color, and insert, edit and delete links.


As part of your Global Text Styles, Heroic offers 6 headline sizes that you can pre-define in Global Styles > Header Styles.

We highly recommend that you don't make custom or "one-off" style changes to Headlines. Keeping all Headlines locked to your Global Style is a huge advantage as you build your website.

This enables you to:

  • keep all of your Headline sizes consistent across your entire site, which sends critical signals of quality to your visitor
  • change your site's headline sizes in seconds from one place, instead of having to update each page individually, saving you hours!

But we get it -- there will be occasions when you'll want to make a particular headline a LOT bigger (or smaller) than the Global Style settings. Or choose a color that's not in your Color Palette.

In cases like this, here's what to do:

  • Hover over the Headline element and click the icon
  • Look to the Headline panel (on the left), and click the Design tab
  • Move the Headline Style (Global Styles) toggle to the OFF position
  • You'll then see the custom style settings. Adjust as you wish!
