Adding Google Fonts

Before we start, be aware that adding Google fonts requires a network connection. Now, do the following:

Step 1: In the Properties pane > Text section, click More Fonts. This opens the Google Fonts dialog which lists all the available Google fonts.

Click More Fonts to add Google fonts to a project.

Or, in the Text section and the Floating Text Format toolbar, click the Font combo box > Add fonts….

In the dialog, you can search for specific fonts, sort fonts, or filter fonts by typefaces and writing systems.

Use the Google Fonts dialog to add fonts.

Step 2: Select fonts and click the Add button (1) to add them to the Added Fonts pane. You can select any added font to apply to the currently selected text or element, if any.

Step 3: Finally, click OK to apply changes and close the dialog.

Google fonts added to your document will appear in the Font combo box so that you can select them to use in your document. They also become font resources in the Resources pane.

Use Google fonts in a document.

Removing Google Fonts

You can remove Google fonts you don’t want using the Resources pane or the Google Fonts dialog.

In the Resources pane, just click the fonts you don’t want and press DELETE. You can also click Delete on the toolbar.

Remove Google fonts from the Resources pane.

In the Google Fonts dialog, select the unwanted fonts in the Added Fonts pane. Then, click the Remove button (2) to remove them from the selection list. Click OK to apply changes and close the dialog.

That’s how to use Google fonts. Hope that this helps.
