Say hello to the new Font Manager!

Design Palette Pro 1.7 introduces the Font Manager which integrates with our Google Web Fonts add-on to give you access to 900+ Google fonts.  The release also includes support for the Infinity Pro child theme (hooray!)

That’s just the beginning –  with the Font Manager you can filter fonts by name, source, or font type. There is also an easy-to-use preview tool that helps you choose the perfect font before adding it to your Genesis child theme.

  • Font Manager:  A sleek and robust interface to manage fonts.
  • Search:  Filter by name, source, or font type.
  • Preview:  Test and preview fonts before adding them.

Using our free add-on Google Web Fonts?

We built the font manager tool for YOU!  It’s true. One of the most frequent requests we get is how to add a Google Font the add-on didn’t include. Well, we tapped into the goodness of the Google API, and now you can choose any of the 900+ Google fonts to add to your theme in Design Palette Pro!

This a big change, but one we know you’ll appreciate – so please read the full Font Manager guide before updating!

You’re probably ready to dive right in, but there are some important steps to take after activating the Font Manager – especially if you would like to preserve an existing font family customization.  Head over to our User Guide and read step-by-step how to active and use the Font Manager tool.  To keep existing font family customization, you definitely must read what to do after updating.
