How to Import Fonts Into Procreate.
Procreate for iOS has tons of features for creating great artwork that rivals some of the best image editors out there. One of the cool features of Procreate for artists is the ability to use fonts. It can be the perfect tool for creating social media posts, logos, and more.
Procreate has many fonts available by default that you can use in your work, but you can use your own fonts or some downloaded from the internet.
Importing fonts into Procreate is actually very easy, you just need to have the font file you want to use on your iPad. In this article, we’ll show you how to download new fonts to your iPad and use them in Procreate for your art projects.
Downloading a Font to the iPad
Before you can use the new font in Procreate, you first need the font files on your iPad. These will be .otf or .ttf files. In the following steps, we will show you how to download these files and use them.
Find the site you want to download fonts from. This could be a free site like 1001freefonts.com or a premium font you bought. After you click on the link to download the font, you should see a blue arrow to the right of the browser’s address bar showing the progress of the download.
After downloading the file, click on that blue arrow and click on the downloaded file. You will open the Files app. Or you can go to the Files app yourself and click on the Downloads folder.
The font file will most likely be a ZIP file, so click on it to unzip it. In this unzipped file, you will see either .otf files or .ttf files or both.
Now that you have your font file, you can import it into Procreate and use it.
How to Install Fonts in Procreate
Now you can open Procreate for the project where you want to use your font. Then follow these steps to import your font.
With a project open in Procreate, tap the wrench icon in the top left corner to open the Action menu.
On the Add tab, click Add Text.
A text box will appear with sample text. Double click on it to open text editing options.
Click on the font name in the upper right corner of these options and a larger text options box will open.
Click “Import Font” in the top left corner.
Your Files app will open and you can find the location of the font files here. Click on the .otf or .ttf file to import it.
Once the font has been imported, you can scroll down the list of fonts and find the name of the font to use. Click on it to use it with your text.
You can now use the newly imported font in Procreate as you wish, or import even more fonts.
