Updating global styles in Adobe Portfolio doesn't change anything

I'm using the Thomas theme and I'm having an issue where if I try updating global styles for the heading font nothing changes.

 

Here's an example:

Notice that I've made sure that the text alignment for the headers are centered, but as you can see the header text is clearly aligned left. I've tried switching back and forth between the global setting for the header, but it has no effect. If I try adjusting the header settings on the page itself, all it does is shift the alignment of the entire header block within the page as opposed to changing the text alignment of the text within the header block. Even if it did what I wanted, I wouldn't want to go through and make that change to each and every page.

 

Has anyone else had this issue and found a solution?

I've used different browsers. Same results. Nothing happens. I have to edit each text container individually. 

 

Please help

Hello Nancy, 

 

Thanks for responding to my request. 

 

I have to say that I feel a bit invalidated when you say: ''Don't overcomplicate this.  Portfolio is a simple online site builder.''

 

In fact, I find that of all Adobe products, Portfolio is the one with the most incoherent and inconsistent structure or visual hierarchy. It's not user-friendly.

 

But that's beside the point, if it can help other members of the community, in order to have global page styles be applied you have to first select the text in each text block and remove the formatting manually for each of them. Only then you will be able to apply the global page style!

This is what I mean by overcomplicated.  The Theme you started with has a global stylesheet applied.  It works just fine on it's own.   Problems ensue when people try to micro-manage it by needlessly adding custom styled text boxes everywhere and then wonder why it doesn't work as expected.   As with most software, the more you use it, the easier it gets. 😁
