    available web fonts

    AMULI Level 4

      Hi,

       

      Why are some web fonts available on http://www.google.com/fonts#

      not accessible in Edge Animate's built-in web fonts pane (for example : Abeezee, Belleza) ?

          Hi Gil,


          The fonts in the Edge Web Fonts panel are pulled from https://edgewebfonts.adobe.com/ which contains a wide sampling - not not all of - those found on Google Web Fonts.

           

          You can use whatever web font you'd like by using the custom fonts tab:

            Thanks Sarah,

             

            I have indeed used the custom tab to copy and paste the code from Google Fonts and even copied 'ABeeZee', sans-serif as the Font Fallback List.

             

            Naively, I thought the built-in panel was an interface to the whole free inline fonts :-)

              Hi Sarah,

               

              In the main font I use, digits have too different widths, so I use another one, monospaced, for the year intervals in an accordion to have even widths.

               

              Flash allows to embed only a subset of glyphs. Is there a way to restrain the loading for the second font only to  the ten digits and a dash ? Thanks :-)

                Hey, Gil-

                 

                Unfortunately, it's highly dependent on the service that serves the fontpack.  Google generally separates the fonts into Latin and Latin-extended, but it doesn't go any more granular than that.  You could probably create your own fontpack using a service like FontSquirrel and use local CSS to refer to it.

                 

                Hope that helps,
