    I have a question about trying to identify the font that I am using.

    On my website, https://www.architecturalhealth.com, I set the headings (H1 through H4) as Century Gothic. So for instance, on the homepage, the large text that says, “People First” should be Century Gothic, as I’ve set through Customize–>Typography–>Headings on GeneratePress. The heading shows as a *serifed* font.

    However, when I look up Century Gothic on Google Fonts, https://fonts.google.com/?query=century+gothic, it shows Century Gothic as a *sans-serif* font.

    The body text should be EB Garamond.

    I’m trying to identify this font correctly so my graphic designer can use it in some other materials.

    Thanks for the help,

    Tyrone

    Hi there,

    How are you adding Century Gothic to the customizer select dropdown? It’s not there by default.

    Any chance you can share the function you’re using?

    Let me know 🙂

    Hi Tom,

    I’m not an experienced coder, so I’m not sure if I complete I completely understand your question about the function that I’m using. I don’t think I’ve done anything special to add that font. Here’s a screenshot of the Customizer. The pull-down menu for H1 lists Century Gothic as a system font:

    And my active plug-ins:

    I don’t know if that answers your question. Let me know if there’s addition information I can send you.

    Thanks,

    Tyrone

    Hi There,

    System fonts rely on the local device having the font pre-installed.
    However, they vary from one device to another. Some versions of Windows still preload Century Gothic, whereas other OS’s do not – for example, an Android device will use Roboto in place of unsupported system font.

    If you must use Century Gothic then you will need to purchase a license for it and install the font locally.

    If you want a google font that is similar – then try Muli.
