Typography is one of the most important elements of design, and when used effectively, it can greatly enhance the visual appeal of your website. Fluid typography is a relatively new concept in web design that allows font sizes to adjust automatically based on the screen size of the device being used. This means that your website will look great whether it’s being viewed on a large desktop monitor or a small mobile phone screen.
In The Plus Addons for Block Editor blocks, you can add typography units in Clamp, which makes them responsive to changes in screen size or device.
Requirement – This feature is a part of The Plus Addons for Block Editor, make sure its installed & activated to enjoy all its powers.

Maximum font size: Here, you’ll have to mention the maximum font size. This will be the maximum font size when the screen size is at the Maximum viewport width.

Back in the editor, paste the code in the Font Size field.
Note: You’ll find this option with any The Plus Addons for Block Editor blocks with typography options.
Now your font size will be fluid based on the screen size.
