Hi,

Are there any plans for Builder to support Google fonts without working with the code?
And, in the meantime are there tutorials for working with the code to enable Google fonts?

Richard

Using Google fonts is very easy. Below are the steps.

1. @import the font in Builder child theme's style.css. The @import statement code will be generated for you by Google when you select a font.

Ex.:

@import url(http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Dancing+Script:400,700&subset=latin&v2);

2. With the google font @imported, it can be set for any text like so:

h1.entry-title,
h2.entry-title,
h3.entry-title {
	float: left;
	color: #262626  ;
	font-family: 'Dancing Script', inherit; /* <--- See this line */
	font-size: 38px;
	line-height: 46px;
	text-shadow: #FFFFFF   0px 1px 1px;
}

Great, thank you.
That seems easy enough.

Can this same practice be used to use google fonts with the Mobile Buddy plugin?
