How to Change Font in Notion: The Only Guide You’ll Ever Need
Notion is an incredibly powerful productivity app that lets you create beautiful, organized workspaces for notes, tasks, wikis and databases. But despite all its customizability, one area where Notion needs to improve is fonts.
The default Notion font leaves much to be desired. And while Notion allows you to change the font to Serif or Mono with just two clicks, let’s be honest – three fonts to choose from is pretty limiting.
But does this mean you’re stuck with ugly, boring fonts in Notion? Absolutely not!
In this comprehensive guide, I’ll show you various ways on how to change font in Notion, from simple browser extensions to CSS hacks.
By the end, you’ll be able to use any font your heart desires in your Notion workspaces. Your notes will look sexier than ever.
Let’s dive in!
How to Change Font in Notion: Default Options
Let’s start with the basics.
Notion gives you 3 default fonts to choose from:
- Default: Sans-serif font. Looks clean but can be boring.
- Serif: Has little feet at the ends. Looks more traditional.
- Mono: Fixed-width font. Reminds you of old-school typewriters.
Here’s how to change the default Notion font:
- Open your Notion workspace and navigate to the page you want to change.
- Click on the ⋮ menu in the top right corner.
- Under “Style”, choose Default, Serif or Mono.
And voila! The font on your page will change.
Sure, it’s not a huge variety. But toggling between the 3 fonts can help you find the right vibe for your page.
Pro Tip: Use Serif for formal pages like your resume. Mono looks great for coding notes.
Use a Browser Extension to Access More Fonts
The easiest way to access more fonts is to use a font changer browser extension.
These nifty extensions let you customize the fonts on any webpage, including your Notion workspace.
Here are some of the best font changer extensions:

Stylebot takes more effort to set up but gives you surgical precision over your fonts. It’s worth it if you want a truly custom look.
Import Google Fonts into Notion with CSS
This CSS hack lets you import any Google Font into your Notion workspace.
If you’re not scared of a little coding, here’s how to do it:
- Go to Google Fonts and select the font you want.
- Click on “Select this style” and copy the @import code.

Use LaTeX to Customize Notion Fonts
Here’s another power-user trick to customize Notion fonts using LaTeX code.
LaTeX is a markup language used for formatting mathematical equations. But you can also use it to format text in Notion!
Here’s an example LaTeX code to change font family:
Just swap in the name of any LaTeX font, and your text will change!
You can also modify other font properties like weight, shape and size using similar LaTeX commands.
While not the most convenient method, LaTeX gives you granular control over text styling in Notion.
