Will this "custom font" option include "office-like" font options? It would be such a benefit to be able to add different colors/effects to specific words/letters within a sentence to provide additional value to the end user. Specifically, I'm looking to be able to change a line of text to red, italicize it, and add a "strikethrough" effect, for content I know may change in the future or may be part of a future release that I want to let the end user know is pending or not currently working.

Thanks for letting us know what you'd like to see, Austin! I don't have the specifics on the features that will be included within the font formatting options, but I know our developers have been hard at work on this tool. We're all excited for it's release! You're in the right place to stay up to date on the launch. ☺️

Hey John! We've still got custom fonts on our roadmap, but I don't have specifics on an ETA just yet. Hang tight--we'll post an update here as soon as it's released! 

Hi Lisa, 

Did you see Alyssa's most recent post? It seems you two could have been commenting around the same time! 

Let us know if you have any other questions.

Hi, there is a workaround to changing the fonts within Rise to any you like. However you will need to change the html and css files - actually not that hard before anyone cries! The only problem lies in that you would have to change the output files every time you make an edit. Not hard but would be better to specify within Rise itself. Looking forward to having this feature!

I've posted a video on youtube if anyones interested.

I don't think changing the font should impact a Scorm export. As far as I know, they don't have much to do with each other. To change your fonts in Rise, you'll need to do 3 things as far as I can tell: 1. upload your missing font (including all weights and sizes) into the /fonts folder in your Rise export. 2. Replace fonts in the font.css file (e.g. replace 'Lato' with 'your-font' in all instances). 3 Change the font reference in the index.html file. It's not terribly difficult but if one isn't a basic front-end developer, it could get tricky.

For someone that hasn't opened Dreamweaver before I didn't really know what I was doing, and don't know why I am doing it ... but I followed your Youtube clip and SOMEHOW managed to get it to work.

Celebration time!

Hopefully an update is made to Rise soon without the need of having to go through this, but thank you Paul for your Youtube clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTKM6QTnuYo

Hey Folks, is there any update about the fonts? It would be great to have the ability to add additional fonts in order to pay attention to our brand. This is a feature that has held us back from using RISE just yet. 

I will keep an eye on this thread, hopefully there will be an update for us.

Thank you,

Daniel
