Hi, like many others here, I'm currently using Hype to create the dreaded Google Ad.
My request is that we have an option to export our working fonts (especially TT or OTFs that we load from our desktop) as svg or outlined elements.
The 150KB limit means all text (fonts) must be outlined even if it were a simple matter of embedding custom fonts and changing out brand fonts for Google-hosted ones, just isn't an option when you're working with marketing collateral.
For more context, the job I'm working on now consists of 7 different concepts each with 5 different sizes ranging from wide banner to square to deep banner. Every time I create a new one I have to create an svg file from the text in almost every variation of text block that is possible. Up to eight frames of text animation per ad.
Whereas a font is the same element between the sizes, each svg file is a unique asset. File management nightmare.
And then comes the text changes ...
You see the issue.
I've seen the request for the ability to convert the font within Hype rather than using a third-party editor. But, I believe paramount to this, is the ability to keep an editable file for ongoing revisions, templates etc. AND still have the facility to export small file sizes and on-brand material.
I don't pretend to know how feasible/difficult this would be or if I'm even asking for the impossible.
I'm currently working with some people have been amazed by Hype based on their first impressions, but are scratching their heads about the workflows regarding type.
