How to use Google Early Access Font

Recommended Posts

anu826

Hi,

 

I want to use "Sinhala" font by Google Fonts. The Google Fonts provide following details on how to use it in website. How can I use it with DMS2?

 

Link for early access fonts is http://www.google.com/fonts/earlyaccess

 

Noto Sans Sinhala (Sinhala)

When text is rendered by a computer, sometimes there will be characters in the text that can not be displayed, because no font that supports them is available to the computer. When this occurs, small boxes are shown to represent the characters. We call those small boxes “tofu,” and we want to remove tofu from the Web. This is how the Noto font families got their name.

Noto helps to make the web more beautiful across platforms for all languages. Currently, Noto covers over 30 scripts, and will cover all of Unicode in the future. This is the Sans Sinhala family. It has Regular and Bold styles and is hinted.

Noto fonts are intended to be visually harmonious across multiple languages, with compatible heights and stroke thicknesses. For the currently released Noto fonts see code.google.com/p/noto/

Link

@import url(http://fonts.googleapis.com/earlyaccess/notosanssinhala.css);

Example

font-family: 'Noto Sans Sinhala', serif;

Hi,

 

If you want to use those fonts, you will want to follow the instructions provided by Google.

 

Also, install and activate the DMS Pro Tools plugin available from your PageLines account, enable the Google webfonts and see if the font is already included.

      Hey all, hope I worded the topic correctly!
      I just need to know if either 1) I'm making a mistake or 2) this could be set as a new feature?
      Using the global settings typography parameters, I have a global paragraph font type (set using googlefonts) and have set the style to align:justify. When laying out <p> text inside a simple TEXT module, the <p> text adheres to both the font type and justification. Perfect.
      Now, when I set <p> text inside the PARAGRAPH TEXT field within an ELEMENT module, the <p> text adheres to the font type, but not the justification. It's rather annoying as I like to fully justify para text across the board and tend to use Element modules instead of text boxes for various reasons. It also seems silly that some PARAGRAPH TEXT fields adopt global settings, whilst other don't.
      Or I'm doing it wrong :S
      Any help or advice is much appreciated!
      Cheers

      Hi,
      I have the primary font family set to Arial. If I add another font (Open Sans), how do I change it only on a specific page? 
      I want to have Open sans only on one of my landing pages, but by default it will fetch Arial. Is there a way to change it without a plugin?

      Hello
      I'm having problems with the Font not appearing correctly on a website.
      I've adjusted the font correctly with DMS (see screen shot) and saved it repeatedly yet it does not adjust the font in the website (see screen shot).  Would you please let me know what is wrong and should be done?
      (Please note that I've cleared the cache in the browser and whatnot as far as basic things I do know about browsers and issues with DMS from the past.  Hope this helps in troubleshooting...)
      Thank you.

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date
