We’ve discovered that fonts on our website (both heading & body text), are displaying on different styles for Mac & Windows. On windows it’s showing as a serif font, on Mac it displays as a sans serif style. We’re wanting the site to display text in the sans serif style as it does on Mac’s across windows machines as well. Does anyone have any advise on changes we could make to allow this? If this isn’t a common problem and you need our URL, let me know.February 11, 2020 at 2:09 pm #263094
yes, I need a url of the website to check this problem, please provide a direct link to the page and would be awesome if you provide a screenshot tooFebruary 11, 2020 at 3:31 pm #263149February 12, 2020 at 9:40 am #263258
everything looks ok on my side, Open sans font is used and when I check it on my PC in every browser it’s appearing normally, can you check which font is used in your Mac devices? is it Helvetica?
The problem is that I don’t have Mac devices to check itFebruary 12, 2020 at 9:51 am #263260February 13, 2020 at 11:51 am #263421
it appears to be Helvetica Neue for me as well, everywhere now on my side too: https://www.loom.com/share/eaa15ea6a84446978531531f3b920aa2
Looks like its fixed?February 13, 2020 at 4:43 pm #263479February 14, 2020 at 11:09 am #263521

Ok, I see code is added but I think important is necessary in this case, let’s change your code to this:
font-family: Helvetica Neue !important;

Alex, im sorry about this, I think its better if you utilize one of the plugins, please try this one: https://wordpress.org/plugins/use-any-font/February 19, 2020 at 4:22 pm #264100
No problem at all, thanks for all of your effort on this one. I’ll give the plugin a try!
Thanks again for the support! Feel free to close this thread.
