    Cant get a google Font to be the default?

    Asked by nickbh on September 17, 2015 at 09:13 AM

    I am having problems with the Google fonts.  It would appear that "font-face are no longer offering the service since:  see>


    I have followed the tutorial, but my fonts keep getting mixed up.  I add in the


    font-family: 'Montserrat', sans-serif;

    It appears in the CSS on the preferences page, but seems to get overridden?

    Anyone any ideas on what I am doing wrong?

    Also strangely it adds 4 lines the same of >

    @import url(https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Montserrat:400,700);

    You can still use the Google Web Fonts, I cloned your form and made the change in my end, here's my cloned form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/52594601005953? 

    1. First, navigate to this link: https://www.google.com/fonts 

    2. Find the font you prefer, and click the "Quick-use"

    3. Here, click the "@import" tab in #3, copy that code. In #4 use that to style a specific element.


    4. In my Form Designer Tool, I added this custom CSS code in the CSS tab

    @import url(https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Montserrat);

    * {

        font-family : 'Montserrat', sans-serif !important;


    The CSS code loads the Google font via import then I use "*" to declare that all the elements in the form will use the font-family "Montserrat".


    I hope that helps. Do let us know if you need more information on this.

    Thats brilliant, thanks.  I stripped out all the CSS and just added those lines back in and it worked great.


    HOWEVER.  Is there any reason when I come out of the Theme designer and back into the design page the font is not shown - it still shows as Courier?  I made another post about it an hour ago?
