In addition to the 1,500+ Google Fonts available directly in Showit, you can upload WOFF format font files that you have licensing to use.

Note: Showit supports WOFF font standards, but that does not guarantee that each font file in that format was designed correctly for web use. Not all WOFF fonts are guaranteed to render in Showit.

Currently, Adobe fonts are not supported in Showit.

Follow our video here for adding custom WOFF font files to a design:

Getting WOFF Format Font Files

If you don't have a WOFF format file available, we suggest you first check with the font owner for licensing details and inquire about WOFF format.

There are also third-party font file converters that will convert from TTF/OTF to WOFF formats.

⚠️ WOFF2 files are not supported in Showit.

Some converted fonts may not work well for web use.

Adding Your Custom Font

Once you have your custom font downloaded in WOFF format, you can upload this file to your media library. You can do this in the same way that you would upload an image.

Once your custom font has been uploaded in this fashion, it will be available to select in your Design Settings under Custom Fonts in the drop down menu next to "Library WOFF"

Then, if you own a license to use this custom font or if it is free to use, choose the option that states that you own the license to use this font on your website.

⚠️ If you don't know whether or not you are required to have a license to use a specific font, ask the font developer. They will tell you whether the font requires a license or if it is free to use.

From there, you can name the font and choose the option to "ADD CUSTOM FONT." You will then see this font in your Active Fonts, ready to be used within your site!
