Google fonts, Dropbox and yosemite browsers - a known issue?


#1

When including google fonts and exporting to dropbox, it seems that they only randomly appear (in both recent versions of Safari and Chrome). We are using 10.10.4 and are in a uni environment, so there could also be an issue with our university internet caching causing the problem.

I know you need to untick ‘create offline application cache’ to get google fonts to appear on IOS devices without a network, but our uni macs are ALWAYS online. Is there a known issue with 10.10.4, or is it our lab mac’s browser caching? Ta -

That’s strange – what is the error you see in the developer console? You can enable the console by selecting Safari > Preferences > Advanced > Show Developer Menu. Next, type ⌘ + option + i, and click console.

Here’s my test, which works well for me in Safari 9: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/spa/i71vl1oentnckw0/Exports/google-font-test/google-font-test.html

It would also be helpful to get a link to your document – there might be something else going on.
