**New** We have recently added 30 new fonts including Helvetica!
 

Currently, it is not possible to upload your own fonts to the Wix Editor. We do understand the importance of this feature and we hope that we will be able to offer this option in the future. 

 

Note: In the meantime, you can upload the text, created with your own font, as a JPG image or HTML code.
 

Note: You are also welcome to check out the Texty app from the Wix App Market which will help you spice up your site with a wide variety of fonts and styles.

For general information about adding apps from the Wix App Market, click here.

      Hi Sonia,

       

      Thank you for contacting Wix Support and providing us with your feedback.

       

      Please note that I have moved your request to the more relevant thread regarding adding fonts (rather than language font support). Please refer to the best reply above for further information.

       

      Do not hesitate to contact us should you require any assistance.

      Have a great day! Nitzan - Wix Support Team

    So, finally, buried innocuously amongst the stone-walling "we cannot provide an ETA, thank you" replies, we have an glimpse into what the issue with providing this feature might be.

    In his reply to hedonromane's question on the 10th August, Wix team member Miki says:

         "Unfortunately, our attempts for this feature has risen up a lot of bugs that we are trying to shake off."

    So there it is ladies and gentlemen - it's only taken a couple of years to get Wix to explain that the reason the most requested feature on the platform - and the feature that would make Wix *the* leading site-builder on the market because it would allow brands to be correctly represented - hasn't been delivered because their engineering team are finding it very, very difficult to implement.

    I *REALLY* don't understand why we couldn't have been told this earlier - or indeed, be informed of progress. Being open about the issues they're facing in implementation might even have won them support with their customer base, rather than the wide-spread dissatisfaction they now must contend with.

    My guess is that either the existing code-base is poorly engineered and therefore incredibly hard to change, or the development team themselves are not up to scratch - entire operating systems have been developed in less time than it is taking Wix to fix this.

    I don't know who Wix's investors are, but if I were them, I would lean heavily on the team to get this done. The Wix product is light-years ahead of the competition at the moment, but is unusable for businesses because fonts are fundamental to branding. This market lead won't last forever, and failing to get the implementation delivered quickly enough would be a hugely wasted opportunity.

    As a company, and a brand, you know the importance of continuity and consistency throughout the product. The simple feature of being able to upload your own font should be a priority to the developers. Although one of the ways around this that you have pointed out would be to upload the body of text as a .jpeg or other image file, but this is not optimised for the mobile sites and loses all of the texts dynamic attributes.

    I am currently using this method, as an image, and it's becoming growingly difficult when switching between the mobile view and the desktop view, for instance the image disrupts the layout of the mobile view when previewing it. 

    Please prioritise this feature, as you can see, this topic is very popular so should be rectified.

    Voting for feature to be able to upload own fonts.  This is a feature that is possible with the flash editor.  How come its not possible for html?!
