Hi there,

I have 1 question, I can't use google fonts in XD anymore. That was still possible in July this year. But not anymore. This is very annoying because there are many more good web fonts than just Adobe fonts. It's very limiting.
Is there a way to use the installed fonts on the computer ( in my case windows) in XD?

Annyone?

Hi @gerthaw35480458, whenever I need to use fonts that I can't see on an Adobe app including XD, I follow these steps to add them to my CC: https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/add-your-fonts-to-creative-cloud.html Hope this helps!

Fantastic tip! Unfortunately it only worked with 1 font. The fonts I subsequently added to Creative Cloud are "already on this device" but don't show up in the list in XD. Very strange.

Hmmm since I never had any problems after applying the steps in that link can't be sure. Is that the case for other CC apps btw, I'd also check that.

Thank you for your response. In Photoshop there is no problem with any fonts.
In XD there was no problem until half a year ago, could use all fonts that are on my computer. I notice that all fonts in my web designs from half a year and more ago, which are not Adobe fonts, are all gone. Weird. Something has changed in XD... not for the better 😞

Oh that sounds weird, as I see it you're using XD on windows but not everyone is having that issue, make sure you have the latest update and let's see if anyone including other experts has anything to say about this issue.

I have already performed the update, but I will do that again and indeed, maybe someone else also has this problem, a windows user. I can't be the only one with this problem, there is no such thing! 😉 Thank you!

Thank you for your response. I've already tried that. This doesn't work either, unfortunately. I don't understand why XD can't load/find the font.

I understand. Let's see if anyone else had the same problem replies here or maybe some other expert suggests something. I'll also do some search and update you if I see any alternative solutions.

That's indeed the same, after closing the fonts are gone, again. Glad I'm not the only one.
A solution hasn't come forward yet...
Surely something has changed in XD, I never had this problem. Lets hope they fix it in the next update. 🤞🏻
