I just started trying to learn Dreamweaver this week using a course on LinkedIn Learning.

 

I'm trying to change fonts for different parts of the page I'm working on - CSS body, h1, etc. When I go to the CSS Designer tab > Selector > body > Properties and select type, I go into manage fonts. I'm picking fonts that are provided to me via Adobe Edge Web fonts, but when the change doesn't appear in the Split window that I'm working in. Nor does it work if I do try and preview using F12. It does, however, work when I use File > Real Time Preview > Google Chrome.

 

Is this just how it Dreamweaver works, or is there a way to take the guess work out of whether or not my fonts are working?

Support for Adobe Edge Fonts was discontinued.   DO NOT USE.

 

You may use web safe font-families from CSS Font Stack. These fonts are commonly installed on most Win/Mac systems.  Or use custom fonts from Adobe Fonts or Google Web Fonts

 

Keep in mind that custom fonts take longer to load because they're sourced from 3rd party servers.  This can add a few seconds to page load and may result in a temporary flash of unstyled content (FOUC).  For best results, use custom fonts as you would sprinkle salt & pepper on food, sparingly. 

 

Hope that helps.  Post back if you have any questions.
