Add and modify font combinations in Dreamweaver using the Manage Fonts dialog box.
Effective July 01, 2022, Adobe Edge Web fonts will be discontinued in Dreamweaver 21.2 and earlier versions. If you are using Edge Web fonts on your websites, you can change them using Adobe Fonts or any other preferred fonts.
Font combinations determine how a browser displays text in your web page. A browser uses the first font in the combination that is installed on the user’s system; if none of the fonts in the combination is installed, the browser displays the text as specified by the user’s browser preferences.
Add Adobe Edge Web Fonts to the Font list
When displaying the page, fonts are downloaded from the Creative Cloud server even if the font is available on the user's computer.
For example, a Script tag that uses only the font "Abel" has the format:
<!--The following script tag downloads a font from the Adobe Edge Web Fonts server for use within the web page. We recommend that you do not modify it.-->
<script>var adobewebfontsappname ="dreamweaver"</script>
The Adobe Edge Fonts tab displays all the Adobe Edge Web Fonts that you can add to the Font list.
To find and add fonts from this list to the Font list, do the following:
- Click the font that you would like to add to the font list.
- To deselect a font, click the font again.
- Use filters to shortlist preferred fonts. For example, to shortlist fonts of the Serif type, click .
- You can use multiple filters. For example, to shortlist filters of Serif type that can be used for paragraphs, click and .
- To search a font by its name, enter its name in the search box.
Click to filter the fonts that you have selected.
Open the Font list from any location. For example, you could use the Font list in the CSS section of the Properties panel.
In the Font list, the Dreamweaver font stacks are listed ahead of the web fonts. Scroll down the list to locate your selected fonts.
Add local web fonts to the Font list
You can add web fonts from your computer to the Font list in Dreamweaver. The added fonts are reflected in all Font menus in Dreamweaver. Fonts of the type EOT, WOFF, TTF, and SVG are supported.
Select Tools > Manage Fonts.
In the Manage Fonts dialog, select Local Web Fonts.
Click the Browse button corresponding to the font type that you wish to add. For example, if your font is in the EOT format, click the Browse button corresponding to EOT Font.
Navigate to the location on your computer containing the font. Select the file and open it. If other formats for the font exist in that location, they are automatically added to the dilaog. The Font Name is also automatically picked from the name of the font.
Select the option that asks you to confirm that you have licensed the font for website use.
The list of fonts is displayed in Current List of Local Web Fonts.
To remove a web font from the font list, select the font in Current List of Local Fonts, and click Remove.
Create custom font stacks
A font stack is a list of fonts in a CSS font-family declaration.
Select Tools > Manage Fonts, and select Custom Font Stacks.
Select the font combination from the list at the top of the dialog box.
The fonts in the selected combination are listed in the Chosen Fonts list in the left of the dialog box. To the right is a list of all available fonts installed on your system.
Do one of the following:
To add or remove fonts from a font combination, click the arrows button (<< or >>) between the Chosen Fonts list and the Available Fonts list.
To add or remove a font combination, click the Plus (+) and Minus (–) buttons at the top of the dialog box.
To add a font that is not installed on your system, type the font name in the text field below the Available Fonts list and click the << button to add it to the combination. Adding a font not installed on your system is useful, for example, for specifying a Windows-only font when you are developing pages on a Macintosh.
To move the font combination up or down in the list, click the arrow buttons at the top of the dialog box.
Add a new combination to the fontlist
Select Tools > Manage Fonts.
Select a font from the Available Fonts list and click the << button to move the font to the Chosen Fonts list.
Repeat step 2 for each subsequent font in the combination.
To add a font that is not installed on your system, type the font name in the text field below the Available Fonts list and click the << button to add the font to the combination. Adding a font not installed on your system is useful, for example, for specifying a Windows-only font when you are developing pages on a Macintosh.
When you have finished selecting specific fonts, select a generic font family from the Available Fonts menu and click the << button to move the generic font family to the Chosen Fonts list.
Generic font families include cursive, fantasy, monospace, sans-serif, and serif. If none of the fonts in the Chosen Fonts list are available on the user’s system, the text appears in the default font associated with the generic font family. For example, the default monospace font on most systems is Courier.
Preview inserted fonts
You cannot preview Edge and Web fonts in the Design view. Switch to Live view or preview the page in a browser to preview them.
Update web font script tag across files
When you update the font in a CSS file that is linked to multiple HTML files, you are prompted to update the script tag in the related HTML files. When you click Update, the script tags in all the affected HTML files is updated.
Update web font script tag on a page
Select Tools > Clean Up Web Fonts Script Tag (Current Page) to update any web fonts on the web page that are not reflected in the script tag.
