Font configuration in Visual Editor


#1

Hi,

I know about the issue with custom fonts in email so I’m basically very aware of the problem letting people configured their own for the visual editor. I also know about the possibility not to use the visual editor but custom HTML code instead.

But I think there’s a gap that could be filled: At least allow a custom font (stack) to be defined and added to the visual editor. It’s not uncommon these days to use a so called system font stack that makes use of default system fonts to give people the pleasure to look at a font they’re used to.

It looks something like this:

body {
  font-family: -apple-system,BlinkMacSystemFont,"Segoe UI",Roboto,Oxygen-Sans,Ubuntu,Cantarell,"Helvetica Neue",sans-serif;
}

and it assures any of the available system fonts is displayed or it falls back to any other sans-serif default. We’re using that on emails for quite a while now and have had good success with it.

The example above is used by Wordpress and Medium in some parts, there are similar but different stacks used by github etc.

It would be great to have the option to define such a custom stack ourselves and still use the quite good and solid visual editor. Having to do stuff in external tools just because you want some different font setting is a bit annoying and seems unnecessary.

Thank you for considering.
