Is it possible to install a customized font in Scrivener?

I’m a Chinese native speaker. Though I do use English for my thesis, I use more Chinese in my daily writing.

Is it possible for me to install some fonts for Chinese characters in Scrivener?

As you’re on a Mac, any font you have on your system is available in Scrivener. I don’t like Apple’s default font (PingFang SC) so I have made a Chinese ‘character’ style which uses Songti SC.

Hope that helps.

As far as I can tell, unless there is something highly specific and problematic about the font, @xiamenese’s reply is also valid under Windows.
Basically: you don’t add or install fonts in Scrivener. You install them on your system. In the OS.


Got it! Thank you so much :star_struck:
