As of November 2015, Edge Animate is no longer being actively developed. For more information, see Edge family of products | End of development.

You can apply Edge Web Fonts to text directly from within Edge Animate. When you select a font from the Edge Web Fonts dialog, the corresponding code to fetch the font from the server is automatically incorporated into the code.

Edge Animate also allows you to specify fallback fonts when there is a problem with downloading, or using Edge Web Fonts on the user's computer.

  1. Insert text within the Edge Animate canvas.

  2. In the Text option of the Properties panel, click the "+" button next to the font menu.

  3. Select the font that you want to use. A preview of the text with the applied font is displayed.

    You can filter the fonts in the panel by their type using the buttons to the left of the panel. For example, to view only fonts of the sans serif type, click the Sans Serif button. 

  4. Click Add Font.

    The selected and applied fonts are added to the Font library in Edge Animate. Double-click the font in the Font library to specify fallback fonts.

    In cases where there is a problem with downloading web fonts from the server, the fallback fonts are used for display. The fonts are chosen in the order in which they appear in the list.
