Fonts and Adobe Captivate

There have been some questions in the comments of my videos that suggest that some people may not understand Typekit fonts in Adobe Captivate. This article will try to explain it.

There are three different types of fonts on a Windows or Mac computer running Adobe Captivate 2017. These are system fonts, web-safe fonts, and potentially Typekit fonts. The importance of font selection only really applies to responsive designed elearning projects, since non-responsive projects convert your text into pictures, and whichever font you choose will render correctly on any device.

System fonts are the fonts that are installed on your computer. It’s important to know that when you use a unique and exciting font found on your computer, that what you see isn’t what someone else would. For example, if I created a Microsoft Word document that used the BlackHawk font and I sent that Word document to someone who doesn’t have that font installed, they will see an entirely different set of characters than what I intended (it will probably display as Times New Roman).
