System fonts are fonts that are installed on your computer or mobile device. Cricut Design Space automatically accesses your system fonts each time you sign in, and allows you to use them in Design Space projects for free.
When downloading fonts to your computer or device, follow the instructions on the font site or app to ensure that the font is successfully installed on your computer or device. Because system fonts are installed on a particular device, the available system fonts may vary between devices.
- Click "Text" from the design panel to the left of the canvas (Windows/Mac) or at the bottom of the screen (iOS devices).
- On a Windows/Mac computer, the Text Edit bar will appear and you can then either type your text first or select a font first. In the iOS app, you will be prompted to select your font first.
- Click on the Font drop-down menu (Windows/Mac), then select the "System" index. The font list will refresh and display only the fonts installed on that computer or mobile device.
- Select the desired font. If you have already typed some text on your design screen it will change to reflect your selection. If you have not yet typed text, the text that you proceed to add will appear on the canvas in the selected font.
Because system fonts are not designed by Cricut, some of them may have design components that are not compatible with Cricut Design Space. This may result in a failure to import into Design Space, or unusual behavior when used in Design Space.
