Move aside Arial 12 pt, you too Helvetica Medium, and you Times New Roman, we’re about to make some bold font moves up in here.
That’s right font lovers of Over (and the world), we are proud to present our brand spanking new font library.
pause for effect
Whether you’re saying “thank you”, “thinking of you” or even “hey you 😉”, you’ll find the perfect font to match. Simply scroll through hundreds of loved, trending and new collections, carefully curated every day by our magical design fairies. And if you don’t find what you’re looking for immediately, guess what? You can search for it.
But wait, there’s more! You can now also re-order the fonts in your manager and delete the ones you’re not so “font” of anymore (hehehe).
In the words of Aladdin, it’s a whole new world, and we’re so excited to be sharing it with you.
So, may your e-card words dazzle, your invite text shine and your social post copy go viral.
The New Font Manager & Library
Here’s how to access it:
- While you’re working on a project, tap ‘Text’ to add your text, and tap the yellow check at the top of your screen to save it.
- Swipe over to ‘Font’ at the bottom of your screen.
3. Tap the upward facing chevron ^ in ‘Font’.
4. Voila! The Font Manager showing the Library screen.
Tapping "Downloaded" in the Font Manager, will bring up the fonts you currently have downloaded to your device in Over. These fonts should also show in the horizontal font tool belt at the bottom of your project canvas.
Tapping "edit" at the top right of this screen will let you delete, rearrange and move the fonts as you wish. Hard-pressing on the 3 lines next to the font name will let you drag them to where you'd like them ordered in the tool belt in your project canvas.
Installing Your Own Fonts
As an Over Pro subscriber, this is easier than ever before! In the new Font Manager, simply swipe to "Custom" to add your font files straight from within Over!
But, fear not, wonderful free users! You can still add your own fonts too!
Any fonts you add on your own will also be stored in the Font Manager and you can rearrange, activate and deactivate them the same as the others.
Google Fonts is a great resource for free fonts that can spruce up any design!
It's fairly easy to install your own fonts in Over, but there are a few things to remember.
First of all... Before you install any font, make sure you have a license to use it on another computer/device.
You can deliver .otf and .ttf font files to your device by email, Dropbox or any other way that you can get a file to your device. You must access a proper font file – .otf, .ttf, or ZIP file with .otfs and/ or .ttfs.
Once you have the font files on your device, whether in email or Dropbox, tapping the “export” icon will give you an option to “import with Over” - tapping that will open the fonts straight into the app!
If you want to install fonts from a ZIP file, just press-and-hold on the ZIP file for the same option to install.
Now you're all set, why not try a design with a new font today?
