How Do I Upload My Own Custom Fonts to Proclaim?

Print Friendly and PDF

While Proclaim includes many popular fonts, you can also upload custom fonts for your whole team to use from the Fonts Settings.

If your congregation frequently uses foreign language characters (e.g., Greek, Chinese, etc.) custom fonts can speed up your rendering times in Proclaim. Many fonts are available for free online and include full character sets for other languages.

1. Navigate to the fonts setting.

Expand Settings and select Fonts.

Settings Menu Open With Fonts Option Highlighted

2. Import fonts.

Click Import… in the fonts settings.

Note: You may need to exit out of and return to Settings or restart Proclaim if your imported fonts don’t display automatically.

When changing the font to a text box in edit mode, your imported fonts will show at the top of the font menu, NOT in the alphabetical list of default fonts.
