As freelancer I work with different clients and I would like to use custom fonts collaboratively with my clients. Currently, you have to download the Figma App, so you can use local fonts. That’s not ideal, since my clients and I work together in a workspace, but they can’t change any text, because they are using Figma in their browser. They would have to download the app too and install the custom fonts, which is not a great user experience. Depending on how many people are involved in a workspace, this would have to be repeated for multiple members across several workstations. Also, you’d have to get clearance from IT every time.
Now this is what I propose:
Ideally, you can install custom for example Google Fonts simply in the settings section of every workspace, so it’s synchronised across all members of the workspace. That’s it. Canva can do it, too. It’s totally doable, it improves the experience so much and it just makes sense!
