How to Add Fonts to Your iPad and Unzip with iPad OS

The iPad Pro came out in November 2015. And, we couldn't use fonts back then with it. But today I'll show you how to add fonts to your iPad so you can type with pretty text in GoodNotes or use it in Procreate to help add to your illustration style.

Watch How to Add Fonts to Your iPad and Unzip with iPad OS

When I recorded the font installation portion of these videos it was before iPad OS came out. So you are free to ignore or skip the part where I unzip them with an unzipping app. In the beginning of the video I show you how you can use the new iPad OS in the Files app to unzip easily.

The new iPad OS update has been pretty cool so far. And, you are supposed to be able to manage fonts with it but I cannot figure it out at all. I have check many posts. They all say to go to the App Store and search Fonts for iPad to download AND install fonts. BUT NOTHING COMES UP FOR ME!

So I’m going to show you how to install fonts that aren’t on the App Store, specifically my Lemon Mellow Font, using the Any Font app. If you have had luck downloading fonts from the App Store, please tell me what you did to get there.

    Hi Holly! Do you typically pick the TTF or the OTF to install? I think I read somewhere the OTF provides more variations.

    PS it’s always reassuring when someone knows how to pronounce leading in their videos.

      OTF includes Glyphs, etc . 🙂
