You need all three types of the google font for getting the self hosted options of your font.

For me a good way, found/get told in this forum watch out this:

Create Your Own @font-face Kits » Font Squirrel

Clicking the expert checkbox leads to a new window like this:

I guess, you could leave everything below that part (at least I did so far but I may be wrong) as it is but you need for sure the

WOFF | EOT | SVG parts.

You could do this with any google font I guess, as these fonts are licensed for web design by default, aren't they?

You should not do this with fonts from different providers but only with the appropriate license of course (not for technical purposes but for copyright purposes).

Uwe

In addition to Uwe​:

If you download the „web font“ from Google, you normally only download code snippets to integrate the font into your site.

Muse works in a different way: You have to install the .ttf version of the fonts in your system and provide the .woff, .eot and .svg files for Muse, using the respective panel inMuse’s font menu.

If you want to download the complete web font set of „Poppins“, try this link: https://google-webfonts-helper.herokuapp.com/fonts/poppins?subsets=latin

Also in addition to Günter Heißenbüttel​ , I normally download the font anyway and not only the code snippet, as I try to use this font for any other purposes as well for folders, businesscards, brochures, … .

It was very helpful in converting fonts while following the instruction you providing with font squirrel link. But one thing is still hindering me muse still not detecting those fonts which are installed on my computer for matching purpose. Is there any problem with fonts? Even though I have installed fonts accurately in my computer muse still not detecting it. Suggestions Please

It is really simple:

  • Remove all poppins-v5-latin-regular fonts from your system to not run into conflicts with double fonts.
  • Then add the poppins-v5-latin-regular.ttf file to your Windows(?) system fonts.
  • Test, if the font is present in another application like Word.
  • Open Muse and follow the steps shown in this screencast:

Nope .

I follow "my" instructions step by step with source sans pro.

- Download the fonts from fonts.google.com

- Move the folder with all fonts into my … library/fonts

- open font squirell

- choose all fonts from this familiy

- make the affordable setups (Expert) with WOFF, EOT compressed, SVG

- move that newly, created by fontsquirell, folder into the same location as my clients site

- change to muse, do that one necesaary step in adding webfonts (search for fonts-check the folder with the font kit) and all fonts show up fine.

Did you do the exact same steps? Checked at font squirell all necessayry checkboxes?

Best Regards,

Uwe

I followed your instructions actually Mr. Günter Heißenbüttel was right actually the problem was font duplication. I had fonts both into Windows > Fonts library and folder I was adding to the self-hosting option. Moreover, I had two variations of muse installed in my pc I uninstalled both and reinstalled latest one and deleted fonts in the folder I added into self-hosting option while keeping the same fonts in windows=>Fonts Library intact.

Thank you guys for being so responsive and keeping forums alive.

Yes, of course you may use these system fonts (as long as the font format is supported; Postscript Type 1 isn’t).

But you will have to accept heavy drawbacks, if you use such fonts: The major one: Since nobody can guarantee, that these fonts are installed on your visitor’s machines (especially on phones and tablets), text, using these fonts has necessarily to be converted to an image during output.

This causes (a) reduced SEO capabilities and above all a different scaling behaviour of your „text“ elements: Text boxes are scaling only horizontally, images in width and height. This may heavily mess up your design in browser view.

Just read my answer 4 in this thread: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2357163
