We have recently unpublished a number of fonts within the editor and added new replacement fonts which are similar in style to the original ones (you can find the complete list below). As of 31st January 2020, these fonts will no longer be supported in Piktochart.
How Do I Know If My Visuals Are Affected?
When you edit a visual with an affected font, you will see a pop-up message that indicates the affected fonts.
What Options Do I Have?
- Apply Changes: The replacement fonts are recommended because they’re very similar to the fonts being removed, and this can reduce disruption to the visuals. However, there may be slight differences between some of them which may cause text alignment issues. If that happens, you will need to adjust the text box sizes to fix them.
- Upload your own fonts: If you’re a PRO user and you have licenses for any of the fonts being removed, you can upload them through the Brand Assets → Fonts page. Check out our Uploading Custom Fonts article to learn more. PRO Team owners can also upload the fonts to make them available for all Team Members.
The already downloaded PNG or PDF file of the visual will not be impacted now, or beyond 31st January 2020.
What If I Choose Cancel?
If you choose to cancel, all the unsupported fonts will still revert to the replacement fonts by default on your visuals. However, you can choose to upload the font file if you have and once the fonts are uploaded, your visuals will be updated with the fonts.
