[Figma Desktop] How can I auto-load newly installed fonts?

Hi! I’ve had this question for a long time. When I install new fonts on my machine, I expect design programs to pick those up and let me use them without restarting the app.

However, I’ve found that Figma Desktop needs to be restarted in order to load newly installed fonts. Is this expected behavior, and is there something I (or Figma) can do to load these fonts without a total application restart?

Hey @Devin_Halladay no need to restart Figma. You will however need to refresh the tab. You can do this by right-clicking on the file browser or file tab in the desktop app and selecting reload. Hope this helps. :slight_smile:
