How to add or delete brand fonts
To add or delete brand fonts you need to be an Owner or Administrator of the workspace.
Follow these steps to add brand fonts:
- In your workspace, click on the Brand kit section in the left sidebar.
- From there, go to the Fonts and styles tab and click on the + Add new font button.
- Your computer's File Explorer will open. Select the files of the fonts you want to add and click on Open.

It's possible that other members of a team may have added identical fonts to the Brand kit. No problem! We've got the solution: to make the process of merging and organizing your fonts easier, you can use the Merge fonts button in the Fonts and styles tab. That way, the duplicate fonts will be deleted.
NOTE: The process may take a few minutes. Meanwhile, you can continue to use Genially as normal.
To delete a font, click on the bin icon that appears when you hover your mouse over it. A message will display in the top right of your Panel, confirming that the font has been deleted successfully.
NOTE: The font formats that are compatible are: .OTF and .TTF
