CSS Example from Codex (Increase font-size) Not Working

Problem in Detail:

There here is an example of Custom CSS cut and pasted from Custom CSS

/*Increases size of text within steps*/
.stepLines {
font-size: 130%;

Trouble: It does not work for me. Text remains at 14px no matter what.

One thing I noticed, the code on the site seems to have class step-lines and not stepLines

Block Image


/*Increases size 'of' text within steps*/
.step-lines {
font-size: 130%;

does not work either.

Adding !important did not make a difference. (I know, lazy, but in testing...)

Any ideas? Was the font classes implementation changed?

Is this a good question?

Hi, Filip!

Thank you for your question. You are correct, you must use the class .step-lines instead of .stepLines. Then, instead of changing the percentage, try changing the px size. For example:

.step-lines p {
font-size: 20px

This should do the trick! I've updated the documentaiton accordingly. Depending on how large you want the font to be, you might have to adjust the line height, as well.

True that. Pixels work, strangely enough. Thanks! PS: indeed, the line height shall be increased as well (with a slew of other related cascading tweaks)
