Hi. I wanted to use Google fonts on my Captivate projects. I've tested a few times with my co-workers opening the project on the LMS and they are not able to see the correct fonts (always turns into Times New Roman).

I've already placed this Javascript function "On Enter Slide"

var fontLink = '<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Calligraffitti" rel="stylesheet">'

$(fontLink).appendTo("head")

Any idea of how to make this work on LMS? The default Windows fonts are not good...

Apparently it works only with non-responsive projects.. I could make it work creating a blank project, but responsive projects doesn't work.

If you use CP2017 or CP2019 why do you not use Typekit fonts?

I tried now with Adobe Typekit and it worked! Never worked before.

- Do you if this is something to do with the Responsive Project option ?

- If final users have some network restriction, will they have trouble to see Typekit /Google fonts?

The way fonts are rendered on Runtime is different for responsive projects, which could be the reason.

I never used Google fonts, love the Typekit library and never had issues with it.
