Import fonts

Last updated: 14 October 2020

You can import any font you have installed on your computer into VideoScribe and apply this to the text in your project.

Please note: Fonts and text were upgraded in v3.6 of VideoScribe to support more languages and output text in a higher quality. If you are using v3.6 of VideoScribe and above please see our More fonts help page, these instructions will not work for you.

If this font is not yet installed on your computer you will need to download and install it. Always make sure you have permission to use a font, especially if you are using it for commercial purposes.

Step 1. Click on the ‘Tt’ button to the right of the timeline (A)

 Step 2. Type the text you want displayed (B) then click on 'Manage Fonts' (C)

Step 3. Choose the font you want to use

The fonts already imported into VideoScribe will appear in the 'Imported Fonts' list (D) on the right. The fonts installed on your computer but not imported into VideoScribe will appear in the 'Available Fonts' list on the left (E). You can scroll through these fonts by dragging the scroll bar (F) or using your mouse scroll wheel. Click on a font you want to install.

Step 4. Choose which characters to install

By default VideoScribe will automatically install the basic character set (400 of the most commonly used English and Latin characters) (G). If you want to, you can add more from the 6 options found below. 

Please note: the more characters you install, the more memory you use. 

To finish press the tick (H).

Step 5. VideoScribe will import your chosen characters. 

Progress will be shown (I)

Step 6. Your chosen font will now appear in 'Imported Fonts' (J)

Click on the tick to go back to the text element input box (K).

Step 7. You will now be able to choose the newly imported font from the dropdown list (L).

Step 8. Click the tick and your text will be displayed on the canvas (M) with your chosen font.

If you want to change the font again, you can click on 'Edit Text' (N) then use the dropdown menu (O) or 'Manage Fonts' (P) to choose another font.
