A lot of my customer's have custom fonts for their website. Would it be possible to have the functionality whereby a customer would add their custom font and the 'back up fonts' to a tool in the settings which would then add the custom font as a drop down option at page level to avoid the need to add the custom font to the stylesheets?
We do now have a font field that you can use in custom modules, but are you hoping to have more fonts available in all rich text modules as well? If so, where do you typically source your fonts? Google Fonts or Adobe Typekit? Or another service?
There are some technical limitations to supporting the font field in rich text, so we're looking at a few alternatives currently. I do agree though, that it feels like a natural next step to have rich text supporting the same options as the font field does. There are a few things that we're working on now that we aren't able to announce yet, but that get at this problem at a higher level. Stay tuned!
At long last, we have released the font field for custom modules! What's more, the font selector field contains Google Fonts! This one's for you, Steve!
This move to support font selectors and Google fonts is just a first step in getting more font options out to many other places in HubSpot that use text editing, so stay tuned!
Thanks for keeping me honest 🙂 We are SO CLOSE. Who knew fonts could be so complicated? But it's going to be totally worth it. And going back to your earlier question, we are planning on supporting different font weights right out of the gate, but only for modules created for pages and blog.
It's taking a little longer than expected, but we should have it within the next month!
The plan is to support at least bold, regular weight and italic to begin. More granular fonts would potentially come in later iterations.
Google Fonts is definitely something we're looking to support as a first step. I would roughly estimate that it will be available in a limited capacity within the next couple of months. With that limited capacity, we won't support every single Google Font, but we will support many, and we would have those Google Fonts only available in the Design Manager to begin. We would expand that access out to other parts of HubSpot over the next few months after that.
Hope that helps!
We're currently working on a few ways to make adding custom fonts easier, although having them appear in font dropdowns is a little farther off. However it's something we are planning on making possible in the future!
