Enable more style options in the theme editor.

Enable more style options in the theme editor such as font size and font weight. On your page, https://www.metaslider.com/documentation/styling/, you state:

If you’re not comfortable with editing the CSS yourself, you’ll be glad to know that Meta Slider Pro includes a live theme editor that lets you completely customise the style of your slideshow – no coding experience needed!

I really do not think it is accurate to say “lets you completely customize the style” when you cannot do these two simple options. I can certainly edit the CSS and feel comfortable doing so, but I expected more in purchasing the pro license. I prefer not to hack up a WP instance in the editor and seek plugins that support it properly.

    Hi Thanks for the feedback. I can probably add the font size to the next release. I made a note of it now Do you think it should just be added to the caption container and let inside styles inherit it?

    Is font weight really needed? I think most people should be using a <strong> or <b> tag, or a header tag, right?

    Anything else you feel that’s missing?

    “I prefer not to hack up a WP instance in the editor and seek plugins that support it properly.”

    I’m not exactly sure what you mean by this. You can inline the CSS in the caption field itself, or add the styles directly to a stylesheet.

    The best would be if the description of the image could be leveraged in the end as the field allows customization of the text using WP’s native text editor. Then headers, font styling, and more could just be picked up by use of that.

      I could probably add an option next to “use image caption” to have options for description, caption, or an override. I’ll look into that.
