Rolling out

Feature update, User impact


SharePoint Online will soon allow authors to choose heading levels for titles in web parts to define information hierarchy. The default heading font sizes in the Text web part will also change. This will roll out in early April 2024 for Targeted Release and mid-April 2024 for General Availability. Authors can set their own heading level, and existing pages and news posts will have the new default heading font sizes. No admin action is required for this automatic rollout. It is recommended to notify SharePoint authors and update relevant documentation.
Coming soon: When authoring pages in Microsoft SharePoint, authors will be able to choose the heading level for titles in web parts to help define the hierarchy of information on a page. As we're introducing this new capability, we're also using it as an opportunity to align the default heading font size in the Text web part. New heading default font sizes:
Heading 2 will now be 24, previously was 28
Heading 3 will now be 20, previously was 24
Heading 4 will now be 18, previously was 20
This message is associated with MC670896 Accessibility Improvements to Page Authoring (August 2023) and with Roadmap ID 387500.
[When this will happen:]
Targeted Release: We will begin rolling out early April 2024 and expect to complete by mid-April 2024.
General Availability (Worldwide, GCC, GCC High, DoD, USNat, and USSec): We will begin rolling out mid-April 2024 and expect to complete by early May 2024.
