Using alternative fonts

Through the branding options, there are a selection of fonts but I would like to make use of our own corporate font.

Is there a nice way to achieve this?

Have tried specifying @font-face statements, which I've used elsewhere, but no luck. Probably because it's cross site references.

Hi Adam,

Yes problem is could be because of cross-site or ssl(Loading a http inside a https site).

You have some options as far as i know.

1. The font asset server needs to allow cross-origin policy. 

2. Upload the font files into something like dropbox and serve it using the files public secure urls.

3. Convert the fonts into data uri and include them in your font face. PFA the sample code done for mcsaatchiheavy and the sample usage for changing your heading family. NOTE: you need to convert individual files woff, eot, ttf etc. to their corresponding data-uri alternative if you want to use the bulletproof syntax for including custom fonts.

Let me know how it goes. 



Hi Adam, hope we are able to resolve your query by uploading the desired font to Dropbox or any cloud service.

If you require any further assistance, please reach out to us.

We will be glad to assist you.


This did not work, Dropbox does not allow cross-origin.

Any alternatives?

The data-uri method does work though!
