How To Download and Install These Fonts
- Launch the Font Book app found in the Applications folder of your Mac.
- Any fonts that are available but have not been installed on your Mac are grayed out in the list. Note that there are a number of fonts for non-Latin languages (i.e., Devanagari (Hindi) or Arabic) that are enabled – if you’re tired of seeing them in your regular list of fonts, just right-click a font and disable it.
- To download a font family or individual font, right-click it and select “Download (name of the font) Family” (see image below).
- Once the font has been downloaded, you’re set! It should appear in the list of fonts.
While you’re downloading the new fonts, be sure to take a look at what other typestyles are available by default on your Mac.
