Wix Editor: Adding and Customizing Text on Your Mobile Site

7 min read
Text is the most integral part of your website. Get it just right on mobile by customizing it to suit your site's design and layout. 
There are 2 types of text that could be on your mobile site:
  • Text carried over from the desktop Editor
  • Text that you added from the Add panel in the mobile Editor; mobile-only text. This text is only visible on your mobile site, not on your desktop site.
You can customize both types of text in the mobile Editor. Customization of text carried over from desktop is limited - you can adjust text size, color, alignment and switch text from horizontal to vertical. With text added directly from the mobile Editor, you have full control over customization - change fonts, reformat text, add effects and HTML tags, and change the content.
Not sure if it's a mobile-only text element?
Mobile-only elements display a mobile icon  when you click them in the mobile Editor.
