Bored of the same fonts? Need to find a special font for a project or report? Google has hundreds of fonts to choose from. You can also change your default font for all new documents.
To find and add new fonts to your list:
Within a Google Doc > Click on the current font for the drop down menu > at the bottom click “more fonts”
In the pop-up box, scroll through the list of fonts (or type in the font name in the search bar), click on the ones you want, then click “OK”. Your list of fonts is on the right. You can also delete fonts from your list here by clicking on the “x”.
You have options on styles that you want to view and how to sort them.
A more detailed place to view the fonts is to go to https://fonts.google.com
Not only does this page display all the fonts, you can also view how the font will look in paragraph form, view the full alphabet in the font, sample different sizes. You can also type using the font before adding to your list.
Now that you added new fonts to your list, here is how to set a preferred or default font for all your new documents:
Open a document in Google Docs and begin typing. Highlight the text.
From the bar at the top of the page, select the font you want to be set as the default.
Click Format>Paragraph styles>Normal Text>Update ‘Normal text’ to match.
With the text still highlighted, click Format>Paragraph styles>Options>Save as my default styles.
After the default font has been set, all new documents that you create will use this font unless you change the default option again.
