  1. Choose Fonts.
  2. For our sample site, we decide we only want to change the font for the menu. Select Menus.
  3. Adjust the Primary Menu Font to Open Sans Condensed and  Primary Menu Font Size to 13.
  4. Click Save & Publish.

  1. This article is pretty vague. It should be called, “How to adjust the primary menu font family and font size.”

    I think this article would be more helpful if it helped answer some basic questions, such as:
    * What text can I customize? Is every text on the page customizable, or just some?
    * What kinds of things can I change about the text? Anything else besides size and family? What about colors / backgrounds / etc?

    • This article is part of a tutorial sequence designed to build a specific kind of site. We have a more detailed guide on changing fonts that I hope will prove a reliable reference for you. However, if you take a closer look at the image in Step 2 (or in your own installation) you can see there are other types of text you can alter besides menus: Headings, Subheadings, and Main Text, and changes made to these are site-wide. So, you are not only editing the Home page and primary menu; you are making changes across the whole theme. Color and background are handled within their respective Customizer areas: Background and Colors.
