Unable to add Cyrillic for Google Fonts pre-added to the Font list in Designer

Could you make special checkbox for support Cyrillic fonts, please?
Now even Google fonts doesn’t support Cyrillic.
<link rel="stylesheet" href=",300italic,400,400italic,600,600italic,700,700italic,800,800italic">
Or give us the opportunity to choose sets of the fonts (for example, OpenSans) in site settings, like other fonts.

Don’t know what you are talking about, I use Google fonts and some support Cyrallic while others don’t. You can find this on the settings of the Google font when you add it in your dashboard for the site. Wheather the font supports Cyrallic or not depends on the creators of the font, not Webflow.

Hope I was able to clarify. :wink:

For example, i have with Ubuntu Font.
I know few ways how to use Google Fonts in Webflow:

1… From Dashboard, where you can add support Cyrillic for Google Fonts.

But not for all. You won’t find Ubuntu Font here: “Google fonts not in the list (Open Sans, PT Sans, etc) are ready to use in the designer.”

2… And from Designer Mode.

But in this case you CAN’T add support Cyrillic for Google Fonts.

3… Last way - Add code from to Custom Code in dashboard. But it is not a good way.
Это танцы с бубном.

You can try to open with Ubuntu in IE or Edge. If you have installed Ubuntu Font on your computer, then website looks good.
But not all of us have installed fonts from Google on computer. Right? And in this case you will see Arial…

The best way to resolve this issue - give us to choice which set of “fonts not in the list” in Dashboard we want to use.
For example, in my website i use only font-weight: 300, but in <head> i have all of this set: <link rel="stylesheet" href=",300italic,400,400italic,500,500italic,700,700italic">.

Нафига мне такое счастье? :slight_smile:

Thanks for pointing this out. It appears to be a bug then.

Hi @denisemenov , like Samuel said, it appears to be a bug, can you please provide the following? The browser you use, its version, as well as your operating system, and its version as well. Thanks! :wink:

Windows 10 Pro IP 14361.0
Google Chrome 51.0.2704.84 m (64-bit)
IE 11.0.32
Edge 38.14361.0.0

So, do you have some news about this bug?

@denisemenov Can you please try making a new website in Webflow and seeing if the Google text still does not work in Cyrillic?

I have successfully edited the text with the standard Google font and it works in Cyrillic for me.

I am using

macOS Sierra 10.12 with
Safari Version 10.0 (12602.
Chrome Version 53.0.2785.143 (64-bit)

and both seem to work.

For example, and
Open it on mobile devices. Fonts doesn’t work on iPhone and Lumia 930. Just compare Latin and Cyrillic.
I think, you have installed this fonts on your mac. In this case you will see this fonts without any problems.

Or you can open this websites in Chrome Developer Mode and find next string:
<link rel="stylesheet" href=",300italic,400,400italic,500,500italic,700,700italic">
As you see, there is no &amp;subset=cyrillic.

i tested on an iPhone 6 Safari and I’m see your text:

@PixelGeek yes, but the Cyrillic font is not in Ubuntu font.

There is no problem with text. There is problem with fonts.
For example, look at letter “e” or “a” in Latin and Cyrillic.
It’s different, because Cyrillic = Helvetica/Arial/sans-serif, Latin = Ubuntu.
But in Webflow i choose only Ubuntu for all text: body { font-family: Ubuntu, Helvetica, sans-serif;}
