Google font crashing Captivate

The place where I work has just gone through a major rebrand which has included changing all typeface to the Google Font "Outfit". I installed this on my windows PC, which then appeared in Captivate and ran nicely on some help guides I am creating.

 

I get caught in other work then go back to Captivate a coupleof days later only to find it won't launch.

 

A quick search suggests it's the new fonts so I uninstall them from my PC and lo and behold Captivate opens just fine.

 

So, question is, any way around this that anyone has come across? The font in question is Outfit.

Safest is to use only websafe and/or Adobe fonts. I couldn't find 'Outfit' in the Adobe fonts library, but I am sure you could find a font which cannot be distinguished from that particula font by 99% of the learners.

Captivate's output is like a website. If you create a responsive project or use dynamic text in a non-responsive project, you know that a font will only be rendered correctly for each user that way. Not all learners will have 'Outfit' installed on their system, and embedding a font is not provided out of the box with Captivate and would increase the file size of course.
