With Adobe Typekit becoming a robust marketplace for fonts and a place to go for any designer, it was only a matter of time for UXPin to connect.
Now all of Typekit’s fonts (since October 2018 called Adobe fonts) are available for all plans! If you want to integrate your UXPin account with Typekit, just go to Integrations panel in Account Settings. Please note that you need to have a paid Typekit account, as we currently don’t support the free plan.
You will be prompted with a small pop-up where you will be asked to provide login details to your Adobe Typekit account.
Once connected, proper information that your account has been successfully connected will be displayed in your UXPin dashboard.
You can also connect your account with Typekit from the Fonts Management section in the application.
You can of course disconnect your Typekit account any time you want – just please note that we won’t be able to display any Typekit fonts then. In such case you’ll see a proper notification in the editor and all the Typekit fonts will be replaced with Arial.
How to use fonts from Typekit
This is very similar to the Custom fonts usage, meaning that you will have to use the Font manager for this purpose.
Simply switch to “Typekit” tab and click “Add fonts from Typekit”.
UXPin will automatically connect with your account in Typekit and download all of the fonts you have purchased there. For this purposes a new kit will be created in your Adobe account, named with “uxpin” and the ID number of your UXPin account.
Once all fonts are downloaded, you will be able to select some (or all – depending what you need) of them to your UXPin kit. Only those selected fonts will be ultimately available to use later on. The last step is to select font styles and add fonts to UXPin:
Selected fonts are now fully available to use in your UXPin designs. Click on any element, go to Typography section in the right panel of the editor and select “Typekit” or type font’s name and voila!
If you need a bit more context while choosing the fonts, you can always view them as a list!
Typekit and Collaboration
We know perfectly well that all the best designs are a result of a team work, so we’ve gone an extra mile to meet all the collaboration challenges.
Each UXPin user connects his account with Typekit separately, so you are able to create a personalised list of Typekit fonts added to your account. And what if you work on a project with a coworker who chose completely different fonts?
Don’t worry, you’ll see a proper notification when your colleague used a font which is not on you list!
You’ll be also able to add it to your account using the plus icon in your fonts library. And you’re all set!
Please note that full exports to PNG, PDF and HTML are unavailable due to Typekit terms of service. Text with a Typekit font will be displayed with the default font – Arial.
