With iOS 13, users can now install and use fonts. This is a nice update for iOS environments where Japanese fonts were scarce. Let's use fonts to change the impression of documents.
Get an app to install fonts
This time we will introduce how to use FontInstall.app. You can use fonts in the same way on iPad.
OFL is a free font license. Because it is available for commercial use and can be resold in software, you can use fonts for free from this app.
Once you have the app, select the font you want to use and install it. Install from this app.
Using installed fonts
The fonts installed here can be used with apps that support custom fonts, such as document-based and image processing. Here we will introduce how to use “Pages”.
If the added font does not appear in the list, try closing the app and restarting it.
In addition, it cannot be used in applications that do not have a function to change fonts systematically such as messages and calendars. Some apps, such as email and photos, can only use default fonts even if they have text editing functions.
How to delete a font
Delete installed fonts from "Settings". When installing, we selected one weight at a time, but when deleting it, the font family will be the target (as of iOS 13.2.3).
Tips for selecting fonts
Some fonts in FontInstall.app contain multiple fonts with the same name but different weights. This is called a “font family”, and there are two to three weights per typeface, and more than eight weights.
You don't have to install everything for each family, but if you combine two or three different weights, you can have a crisp look when creating documents.
