Custom Fonts

Adding custom fonts is easy. All you need to do is upload your font file to the library and the font will automatically be added your font library and can be used anywhere you use text.

We support fonts in .woff.ttf and .otf file format. If your font file is in some other format, you can try using an online font converter (for example http://www.freefontconverter.com/). However, beware that on rare occasions converting fonts from one format to another can result in malformed font files.
