I’ve installed an extra font into my windows font folder. Microthemer is not picking it up when I create a new css style and change the font. Are there any extra steps I would take? OR is this a wordpress thing in General?

Many Thanks

Paul

Hi Paul,

Web applications like Microthemer don’t have access to fonts installed on your computer for security reasons. If you would like to use a custom font (not one offered by Google) you may be able to find it in a web-compatible form on font squirrel: http://www.fontsquirrel.com/tools/webfont-generator. Note, you will need to manually include the font-squirrel font without the help of Microthemer, and this will require some technical knowledge/learning.

If you can be a bit flexible with which font you use, the simplest thing would be to use Microthemer’s built in Google Fonts. Choose “Google Font…” from the font-family dropdown menu (the first item), then browse a font you like and then click the “Use this font” link to apply it on the page.

If you need any further assistance please let me know.

Cheers,
Sebastian
