How can I use Google apis fonts

Post by terryfoster60 » Tue Jan 29, 2019 7:14 am

I have a textbox which I want to embed some google fonts.
Usually you can go to the html and hardode the link to a stylesheet for the font somehow.
Can this be done because I am finding it limited as WYSIWYG is not supporting fonts used outside the safe fonts list.

If I need html to directly enter this in the 'html code' behind the textbox then please can you tell me how

Thank you

Terry

Your information is not correct. WYSIWYG has built-in support for @font-face and Google fonts!

To use Google Fonts you can use the Google Font manager.

Thank you.
However I have been asked to use the Monotype Corsiva which is a Microsoft font.
I have tried the @font options and this does not work for me.

I test on a deparate machine which is defaulting to Times New Roman (I think) instead of monotype corsiva.

I am obviously doing something wrong.

Thank you

Did you convert the font to woff and/of woff2 format?
Do you have a license to use this font on a website?
