Use sans serif fonts everywhere on Cutline

We’ll be publishing some of the more popular questions that have been posted/sent in to our Cutline support desk. If you have any concerns, don’t hesitate to contact us.

The Cutline Theme is designed with serif fonts (Georgia, Times New Roman) as body text, and sans serif fonts (Helvetica, Arial) as header text. Not everyone is a fan of this combination, however, as we’ve received this question from several of you. The key is in finding all instances of font family declaration in the stylesheet.

  1. Open your style.css file.
  2. Everywhere you find

    Georgia, "Times New Roman", Times, serif

    replace it with

    Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif

    The key is in the serif vs. sans-serif declaration.

One user wanted to use Geneva instead of Helvetica, so this is the font stack we recommended:

Geneva, Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif

Which means we also advised the addition of Geneva, Tahoma to existing sans-serif declarations as well.
