Adding fonts to our Google font library

Adding fonts to our Google font library

The standard font library under our Google account includes several very useful fonts. We have access to a variety of other fonts which can be used to enrich our slides or documents.

The fonts in the library are divided into categories. We can filter the fonts by these categories. Click on the “Show all fonts” selector and click on one of the categories.

my fonts section

Selected fonts will appear in the “My Fonts” panel. These are the fonts we will be able to select while formatting text. Click on the “x” next to each font to remove the font from the “My Fonts” panel.

update selected fonts

Click the “OK” button to close the font library and return to the document. The selected fonts will be added to our font list and we can use them in documents.

The fonts we add to our “My Font” list can get a little long. In time you might want to remove some of the fonts from the list. You can do this without worrying about the removal of these fonts affecting the documents that use these fonts. If the font is not available in your font list, Google will still retrieve the font from the library so the documents that use the removed font will look display the document with the appropriate font.
