Choose a font

The font selector for the Text tool lets you select from a list of common fonts. You can also add web fonts that are available in Google Fonts.

  1. Select the Text tool in the toolbar or open the Text panel.
  2. Click the font name in either the tool options bar or the Text panel. The font menu opens.
  3. Choose a font.

You can either choose the font first and then add text, or select existing text and change it to the font you want to use.

Adding fonts from Google Fonts

In addition to the common fonts that are built into Google Web Designer, you can also use hundreds of free, open-source fonts available through Google Fonts.

To add a font from the Google Fonts catalog:

  1. Select the Text tool  in the toolbar or open the Text panel.
  2. Click the font name in either the tool options bar or the Text panel. The font menu opens.
  3. Click More fonts… at the bottom of the font menu. The Google Fonts catalog loads.
  4. Search for fonts by name or by using the filters to narrow your options.
  5. Select the fonts you want to use. They appear in the Added fonts list on the right.
  6. When you're satisfied with your selection, click OK. The fonts you added are now available in the font menu for this document.

When specifying a web font in a CSS style rule, list at least one fallback web-safe font.

For Japanese templates, you might use the following list:
"ヒラギノ角ゴ Pro W3","Hiragino Kaku Gothic Pro","メイリオ","MS PGothic",Verdana,Helvetica,sans-serif;
