I recently tried to open a new sales presentation I was working on for SOPHISTICATES in Keynote on my iPad Pro. Just like I remembered it from an eternity ago, it told me that it had to replace our corporate font (The Sans) with a more generic font.
Yes, we’re actually using a font that’s not readily available. But I couldn’t imagine that it still wasn’t possible to install fonts on an iPad Pro—a device capable of replacing many people’s laptops. So I googled and actually came across a couple solutions.
The open source application Fontcase wins. It opens your custom fonts on any iPad or iPhone running at least iOS 13 and creates a profile containing them to install the typefaces you need in your system’s settings.
Voilá, thanks to Fontcase I can now use my iPad or even my iPhone for that quick change to the sales presentation, without it destroying our nice design!
