WOO Canvas harnesses the design power of hundreds of fonts at your disposal.
Title in the header, widget titles, post meta font choices, page titles, heading 1, 2, 3, etc., there are so many places where WOO Canvas lets you choose which font you want to use it’s just plain nutty. But be careful in there, you can very easily choose too many fonts and lose any kind of design consistency.
[box type=”info”]The good news and the bad news is that there are hundred of Google Fonts to choose from for a multitude of content areas within Canvas. [/box]
In Canvas, as you’ll see in the video, you can preview what a font looks like, but only one at a time. If you’d like to see the full list of fonts displayed in real time, you can see all 600+ at Google Fonts.
[box type=”tick”]Bonus: did you know that you can even download a Google font and use it in your e.g. Photoshop?[/box]
Just a few short years ago, “web friendly” fonts were limited to a very (no, very) small group of fonts that was limited to the lowest common denominator of what people had available on their computers so a browser would have a better chance of reading it correctly. Good luck with that. The solution was to use images to make the text look like you wanted it–but then it was no longer text, of course, it was an image. Anyway, all old news. You now, in WOO Canvas anyway, have hundreds of stylish fonts that can do wonders (and blunders … ) to your site with a click, a choice, and a save.
