Fonts installed on my PC aren't showing up in Adobe XD, how do I add them?
Edit: I should clarify when I say installed I mean activated via a font manager (FontBase, NexusFont, etc.) They show up in Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.
Hi, on which computer are you working? Windows or Mac Os?
I wonder if it is because XD compacts the fonts.
Can you confirm if the whole font family is missing or is it just that you don't see the additional options in the initial Font Choice Drop Down.
For example in my Font Manager I can see Book Antiqua, Book Antiqua Bold, Book Antiqua Bold Italic, Book Antiqua Italic.
When I'm in XD all I see is Book Antiqua, but then in one of the drop downs I can choose between Bold, Italic, Bold Italic.
I was having a VERY hard time with Adobe XD finding the fonts I activated with FontBase, BUT I have found the unusual solution to fix that problem by simply —
Very strange that Adobe XD didn't find my fonts to the default location FontBase put it (originally located in "C:\Users\%PROFILE%\FontBase"), so changing that location solved my issue.
Hopefully, this helps a lot of you out there!
It worked very well for me. Not Ideal, but it's a fix for now.
Thanks a lot!
Oh well, I did have problems with this before, believe this had been fixed (and is stated in the changelogs of both apps as far as I remember), hadn't used XD for a while, only to find it doesn't work anymore again. Thanks for the 'fix', that does it now!
Thank you very much, you have saved my sanity! 😄
Thank you! I was wondering why the fonts couldn't load and found this solution to still be the answer.
well, that is a great fix finally... thanks for saving me some bucks with Figma membership
Brilliant, this is a big help, thank you!
Thanks so much for this answer. You just solved a major gripe I had with XD even though it's a workaround
We are happy that your problem with Adobe XD has been resolved. If you need help in the future, contact us 🙂
Unfortunally non of the solutions works for me. I'm on Macos Catalina with latest XD.
The Fonts are displayed in XD but not in the demos on ios iphone or ipad.
I tried everything mentioned in this threat. Complete random if a cusstom font (mainly google fonts) works or not. Sometimes it works, sometimes not, sometimes days later. Its impossible to work with clients on projects if they cant see the right fonts. Guess i have to switch to figma or sketch.
whatt???! I L O V E Y O U!! I was tired to look everywhere to find a solution to this!! close XD, close fontbase, open again, restart the computer, crazy solutions! lol
thank you so so much!!
I can't change it as "/" for the address. As you did?
Go into fontbase settings. Under Root folder
this doesn't work for me, I would even prefer to not use Adobe fonts at all and only deal with local ones. I am tired of this s*** that keeps me away from real tasks, considering Figma a little more every day because of that.
Hey Adobe, somebody here ?
This worked for me
For this to work though you should be connected with creative cloud with the email you used with xd.
The Fontbase trick works until you try including .OTF fonts. For some reason, Adobe XD doesn't recognize OTF fonts
How do you get to the XD settings on a Mac? There is a font I downloaded to the creative cloud but it didn't upload to XD and I'm trying to follow your instructions but Im new to XD so I will need some guidence.
