A Note About “Mix” Blocks

“Mix” blocks are mixture of other blocks. Knowing this is important when you want to change, for example, typography in these blocks. There is no separate option for “Mix” blocks typography and changes should be applied to original blocks. For example in “Mix 1”, big item inherited from “Grid Listing 1” and small items are from “Thumbnail listing 1”. So change typography options for those blocks to apply changes in “Mix 1” block.
