Question: Can I import different fonts

Is it possible to import different fonts to be used in documents, similar to the way one can share or transfer data among apps through iTunes?

Answer:

Pages does not embed fonts within documents. It uses font references to actual fonts installed on the system, whether provided by the operating system, or additional fonts by the user.

A little rude, PeterBreis0807. Obviously FastPmpN means in Mac, since they are in the forum. iPhone in the tag just means that FastPmpN has an iPhone, and either has a Mac not added or uses a Mac set up on another Apple ID.

Hi! Unfortunately, I don’t think that fonts can be imported. If you want more fonts, try Google Docs. Although I (and others I know) do not like Google Docs overall, you have a larger selection of fonts that can be “imported” into your personal collection. Hope this helps!

Hi 'FanGirl,


Not all that obvious. The OP lists only an iPhone and an operating system that does not work on a Mac.


Apple Support Communities home page provides icons for four categories of hardware, macOS and system software, and iTunes. Clicking any of those does not lead to a link to any Pages community.

Below that is a link to "More communities".

Clicking it brings up a new set of icons, including the three iWork applications icons, but the word "Pages" is still not seen. It appears only after the user has clicked the iWork name, and then appears only as part of the phrase "Pages for Mac."

To get to the community where Pages for iOS questions are handled, the searcher has to click on the link to iWork for iOS.

Considering that Apple has NEVER bundled the iOS versions into an iWork package, nor has it ever promoted such a package, it's not surprising that plenty of Pages for iOS questions wind up here, following a link that is labeled "Pages…"


Peter's question is a legitimate one. I think you'd understand that if you were answering questions in this community, and saw all the questions that come in.


Regards,

Barry

There is nothing obvious about anything anybody posts here. Many people post in forums with no awareness nor consideration as to whether it is the right one, and in this case you are, I am fairly certain, wrong.


The O.P. does appear to be talking about Pages for iOS. The clue is in the fonts issue and sharing data via iTunes, whatever they mean by that.


Hang around a bit longer, pay attention, and you may learn you are the one who is being presumptive.

It doesn't matter and no apology necessary.


Experience will be a valuable lesson.


Doing support gives a valuable insight into people's "thinking". Which consists of saying the first thing that pops in their head, lots of bad guessing, and the presumption: "Oh, you know what I mean" - No we don't.


We spend a lot of time trying to guess what posters meant to say but haven't. Not even close.
