Font Picker
The Font Picker has three tabs: Choose Font, Google Fonts, and Theme Fonts. When you are editing a theme font, only the Choose Font and Google Fonts tabs are visible. When selecting a font on a widget, only the Choose Font and Theme Fonts tabs are visible.
The Choose Font tab lets you build a font definition, the Google Fonts tab lets you choose and optionally embed a google font, and the Theme Fonts tab lets you select one of the fonts defined in the theme.
Element
Description
Font Family
Defines the list of font names to use in the theme. The browser will use the first supported font family.
Dimensions
Defines the size of the font in pixels. The Line Height is usually not needed and should be omitted.
Style
Use the Bold and Italic check boxes to specify the font-weight and the font-style. When the check boxes are in the indeterminate state, the font-weight or font-style are not added to the definition. Otherwise the font definition will have a font-weight and a font-style.
The decoration drop down lets you define the text-decoration style.
Sources
The sources list lets you add custom font definition files (URLs) and define a new font family. See Fonts for more information.
Click
to add new font and specify where the font files are located.
The dialog shown above lets you define a font family name and associate it with one or more font sources. Once defined, the new font family name can go into the Font Family field. Use the
button to import a local file as an embedded base64 data font.
Text Shadow
Here you can type a CSS font shadow definition. See CSS text-shadow property. i.e. "2px 2px #ff0000".
The Google Fonts tab allows you pick one of the fonts offered by Google Fonts and either link the source of embed the font in the theme. We usually recommend embedding the font: it loads faster and your users will not require an open internet connection to download the font from Google.
Make sure to use both, the woff and the ttf version of web fonts to make auto sizing work properly. See Tips & Tricks for more details.
