Rise: Button block has different Font to rest of the blocks

Sep 17, 2018

I have used a button block at the end of my course to allow a student an easy way to exit. The problem is that the Font in the button block is not taking on the same Font as the rest of my blocks even though I have checked the size is the same. Image shows the problem.

Has anyone else come across this and found a solution?

Hi there, Dennis. Thanks for reaching out.  Because Rise is built for rapid authoring of responsive courses, we've designed a lot of the formatting for you.  It sounds like this doesn't quite match your needs, though.

I can see how you might want to match the button text font to your theme font, so I'll pass that along to our product team for you. 😁

Ah, thanks for clarifying that! Could you share a few screenshots of the button block and the font theme you're using? Here's what I'm seeing?

I'm using Merriweather for both heading and body font. 

In this button block, the heading and body text are both Merriweather. The font in the body is a thinner version of Merriweather, but you can set it to bold, if you like.

Since I would consider the body text in all interactions as "body text" I think it should use the body text font. Not so much a feature request, but just a request to fix what seems to be a mistake in the program.

Should I log this?

Hi there, Elizabeth. The button block text uses the Headings font instead of the body font. If that text isn't matching what you selected for your headings font, let's have a closer look together. You can start a case with my team here.

We're tracking requests for the button stack description text to match your body font, and I'll tag this discussion to be updated.

This has always bothered me as well. Button blocks use the heading font instead of the body font and it stands out like a sore thumb for folks who use drastically different fonts. But it's been this way for as long as I've been using Rise so I'm not expecting a fix anytime soon. Just seems like a very odd design choice by them.
