Hi guys,

Am updating my site and was wondering how I can upload text in a 'nicer' font, I did this once by creating the text in powerpoint, saving as an image and then inserting - but upon trying now, it looks fuzzy!!

Does anyone know of a way (and a format to save as if inserting as an image) to insert a body of text in a particular font that the sitebuilder doesn't offer??

Thanks in advance!

Hi Marcela,

The font selection we have represents a complete list of browser safe fonts. See: Website Browser Safe Fonts. This means that the fonts in our text editor will work consistently in whatever browser your visitor uses. Unfortunately there are only a few fonts that work in all browsers. If we added any more fonts you would run the risk of not having your text display correctly for some of your visitors, which is why we have not added any of these fonts.

You could add custom fonts from an external source by copying and pasting, or editing the text HTML as Alex said above. However, you should be aware of the following dangers:

1. copying and pasting could introduce formatting that is not web-friendly and this would cause your site not to load, so we don't recommend it.
2. your site will not display consistently in all browsers.

The only safe way to introduce custom fonts on your page is to upload them as image files. You can do this if you have access to any image editing tools such as Photoshop, or you can try Picnik.com. I hope one of these will work well for you. Let us know if you have further questions!
