To use your local/system fonts in Figma, you have two options:

  1. Use our desktop app (available for macOS and Windows). This is the recommended option. Simply download our desktop app and you will be good to go. The fonts you've installed on your computer will appear in the font list.
  2. If you want to use Figma on the web with your browser, you can download the font helper. Read on further instructions!

Font Helper

The Figma Font Helper allows browsers to access the local fonts stored on your computer. You can install the font helper (available for macOS and Windows) from your Account Settings. After downloading and installing the font helper, be sure to restart your browser. 

You should now be able to use local fonts in Figma. Try using the Arial font, for example.

If your local still don't work, try restarting your computer. If that doesn't help, we recommend using our desktop app.

TypeKit fonts

Adobe TypeKit fonts are supported on macOS and on Windows 10.

If you're on Windows 10 and TypeKit fonts don't work, install the latest Windows updates.

What about Linux and ChromeOS?

We do not currently support using local fonts on Linux (e.g. Ubuntu) or ChromeOS (e.g. Chromebook). A Linux version of the Figma desktop app is on our roadmap, stay tuned!
