Overview

Fonts Available Within Atticus

We’re currently researching different licensing options for allowing user imported fonts. We want to be sure to protect all our authors as well as ensure everything is safely and legally handled through Atticus.

In the meantime, there are a variety of fonts available for users to choose from, including decorative options for chapter headers as well as fonts ideal for print versions of your book.

For your Chapter Headings and Subheadings, you can choose from one of the Atticus preset fonts, or you can access the Fonts Library, allowing you to choose from a wide range of open access Google Fonts.

The Google Font Library is currently in Beta.
While the platform has been tested for general use and reliability, because of the extensive selection of 1500+ options, not every individual font and style has been thoroughly tested in all conditions. While efforts have been made to ensure the quality and compatibility of these fonts, there may still be some variations or unforeseen issues that arise as users explore the expanded font library.
Please be aware that while Google Fonts offers a wide range of options for creative expression, there may be occasional inconsistencies or quirks that emerge during use. Feedback and reports from users are valuable in helping to identify and address any issues, contributing to the ongoing improvement of the platform.

If you’d like to match the fonts in one of the preset themes, here is a reference guide:

Chapter Heading:

  • Chapter Number
  • Chapter Title
  • Chapter Subtitle

Subheading

  • Headings 2 – 6

    When you click on the blue Library button, the Font Gallery will open in a new window.

    The Font Gallery consists of two tabs: “Favorites” and “Library,” allowing you to view all the fonts you’ve added to your Favorites and the complete library of available fonts.

    You can use the search bar located at the top right corner of the Font Library to search for any font by name, or Filter to narrow down font options by type, including sans serif, serif, handwriting, display, and monospace.

    Selecting and Managing Fonts

    To select any of these fonts for your theme, you’ll first need to find your preferred fonts in the Library, and add them to your Favorites by clicking the heart in the upper right corner of the font info card.

    Once you’ve added all the fonts you’re interested in, you can close the Library to return to your theme editor. All fonts saved to your Favorites will be available in the font dropdown menus for Chapter Headings and Subheadings.

    To ensure the highest quality and readability of your book, Atticus offers a curated selection of 15 body fonts optimized for print and digital formats. While Google Fonts are available for chapter headings and subheadings to add creative flair, limiting body font options helps prevent formatting issues and maintains a professional, reader-friendly text.
