A Quick Overview of Global Presets

The beauty of Divi is that it gives you full control over the design of your website using a wide range of design settings that you can use to customize the appearance of any element or module.

The new Divi Presets system allows you to design a custom appearance for a Divi element (like a button module) and save it as a preset. All of the design changes you make are saved in the preset. When you add a new module to your page, you can browse your saved presets and quickly apply them.

Once a preset has been applied, the module’s default design is controlled by the preset. If you update the style of a preset, all modules using that preset are updated as well. This allows you to control the design of your entire website using a small collection of saved presets. Plus, it saves tons of time when adding new modules to your page, since you don’t need to design each new module from scratch but instead can quickly select an appearance from your Divi Presets library.

How to Use The Global Presets Style Guide

Option A: Automatically Uploading All Global Presets at Once

This approach will automatically add all presets to your preset library at once.

Tip: Keep Style Guide in Separate Tab to Copy/Paste Specific Styles (Gradients/Box Shadow/Border/…)

Last but not least, it’s a great idea to always keep the style guide in a separate tab. Using Divi’s built-in and cross-page copy-paste option will help you quickly transfer styles, like gradient backgrounds, from one element to another!
