I think it might be handy to have a sign to distinguish google fonts from custom ones.
What do you think?

Hello,

You can name custom fonts.
For example "Custom font ..."

You can upload it as an independent font

In my site I have to use two custom fonts families (normal and italic, with several font weight).

You advised me to upload 4 indipendent font families:
- custom font 1
- custom font 1 italic
- custom font 2
- custom font 2 italic

Then, I set H1 tag with custom font 1.

For example, what happens with this html code:
<h1>normal text <i>italic text</i></h1>
?
Use the Italics text the "custom font 1 italic" font?

With google fonts, I'm able to upload normal and italic in the same font family.

You can check this :) add code and see the result.
Most likely the browser will try to substitute font-style: italic.
If this font is not an italic item, then it will not be rendered correctly.

Don't you think it's more correct to allow to gridbox to upload italic font in the same font family?

We will consider your proposal, at the moment we can suggest you enable "italic" in the plugin settings

Hi there

Italic fonts should be uploaded as a separate font-family, should be like on my screen:



html tags <i> or <em> it's not the same as original italic style of the font. html tags just tilts the font, original font style italic,usually it's more that just tilts the font.

Let's take a look at the example




So, you need to use 2 font-families

Now I understand. I didn't know that the html <i> or <em> tag is not the same as the original italic font style. I'm sorry.

My mistake is due to the fact that the preloaded google fonts of gridbox (regular and italic) are inserted in the same font family while I cannot load them together.G. wrote:
