when I go in Joomla to Extenions > Templates > Styles > default template > Typography I can't select the font.
When I choose a Font Family the dropdown menu just doesn't work. I tried to update the Font List and I also tried different browsers. No Luck.
Thanks for your help!

Helix 3 - Can't select font in Typography settings
3 years 3 months ago #10896
Hope you are doing good! This issue that you are facing is because Google is blocking the Font Family updates in both Helix3 & Helix Ultimate due to either the Google complaint GDPR policy or they might be making some changes, not really sure! But we will try to fix this issue in our next update but for the moment you can make the following changes:
1 create folder named webfonts in templates/jd_dallas/webfonts
2 paste this webfonts.json file.
yes that worked. I uploaded the file not in Joomla but in the file management of my webspace.
I heared that it is better to have the fonts saved directly onto the webspace so they don't need to be loaded from a google server. That way there is no conflict with the new European General Data Protection Regulation.
I opened the webfonts.json file with the editor an saw that it just contains links to fonts. Is there a way to acutally save the font on the webspace so that it doesn't need to be collected from a different server?
Glad it worked! But you cannot actually save the fonts to your space instead save the webfonts.json file > Go to Typography section > Choose the font of your choice and you can see the changes done at frontend.
