Theme Style - Global Settings
Theme Style settings are global settings that allow you to set default styling options for various elements, such as Backgrounds, Headings, Buttons, Images, and Form Fields. These settings override the theme styling settings and takes its place, allowing you to use Elementor to set styles for elements not built by Elementor. By default, this will apply styles only to non-Elementor elements, for example, WooCommerce checkout fields, Contact Form 7 labels, 3rd-party headings and much more. If you prefer, you can force these Theme Style settings to also apply to Elementor-built elements as well.
Note: Elementor Pro users can also set Global Custom CSS which lets you apply custom CSS rules to your entire site.
To Apply Theme Styles To Elementor Elements:
In order for Theme Style settings to apply to most of Elementor's elements and widgets as well, you will need to disable Elementor’s default colors and fonts.
- Disable default colors and default fonts by going to Elementor > Settings and placing a check in the boxes next to Disable Default Colors and Disable Default Fonts.

Undo / Redo & Draft / Publish
Just like any other Elementor editing you might do, Theme Style woks with the Revisions and History controls, so you can undo / redo any changes, and can always revert back to an earlier version of your Theme Style design.
Theme Style also works with Draft and Publish modes, so you can test the changes and save them to draft, without having them affect your live site. Your live site will only get the changes applied when you click the Theme Style’s Publish button.
HTML Elements Affected
Note: Some elements won’t get affected because Elementor doesn’t allow editing them (e.g fieldset, input[type=”reset”] and more)
- Paragraph spacing:
Why Did All My Theme Styles Disappear?
This happens when the Default Kit is deleted. If you go to Templates > Saved Templates, and then select to view All templates, you will see a new template listed there, called Default Kit. The Theme Styles are stored in this Saved Template. The Default Kit template, if deleted, will automatically recreate itself, but deleting it will remove all settings stored in the Theme Styles, so only delete this template if your goal is to completely reset your Theme Styles.
