Sorry for the delay in response. Regarding fonts, when possible, fonts are sent to the device when we preview on mobile. However certain font vendors do not allow for the transfer, display, and distribution of their fonts. You are responsible for ensuring that you respect the font license agreement between you and the font vendor.

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. While previewing a prototype on a mobile device, default system fonts installed on the device are used in place of missing fonts so for the best viewing experience, I'd recommend installing the actual fonts on the device.

 

Feel free to reach out if you have any further questions or issues in the future.

 

Regards

Rishabh

Well...emmm...I'm sorry, but:
1. As it's obvious, I'm unable to install fonts on clients device (PC, Mac, whatever)...

2. So far as I know, it's immpossible to install font ie. SF Pro on Android devices

 

Is there any planned solutions for any above problem? For instance Protopie Android App has ability to install custom fonts (for your own legal responsibility).

That wouldn't be perfect, but at least better than nothing.

 

Also your Adobe XD android app has font sync with Adobe Fonts. Maybe there should be similar function when we (or client) open shared project in the PC/Mac browser?
