How to Change Fonts in Notion

First, we will cover the official method to change font style in Notion. 

1. Use Official Notion Fonts

 By default, you can choose from three default Notion fonts. They are the default ones, Mono, and Sherif style. 

Type the text in the Notion page and it will use the default Notion font style. 

Now click on the three-dot menu at the upper right corner and select either Mono or Sherif font style.

The problem with the current method is that it will change the font style of the whole Notion page. Every text from the Headings to Paragraph will be displayed in the selected font style in Notion. 

By default, Notion doesn’t allow users to change a specific block’s font style within the page. 

If you only want to change font style in a specific heading or paragraph, this trick won’t work. For that, you need to use third-party web services to get the job done. Read along to learn how to use them.
