For example, a lot of Gmail users want to use Google web fonts in their Gmail. While Google has no immediate plans to add Web fonts to the Gmail, you can still change the default Gmail fonts and use any other fonts you use in your MS Word Documents.
Here are the step-by-step process on how to add different custom fonts in Gmail:
Step #1 : Enable Canned Response
To begin with, you need to click on the settings on your Gmail account and click on the “Labs”. You will find several features under this tab, which are usually disabled by default. However, Gmail users can choose to enable any features as per their liking.
You should go to the Canned Response feature, and click on the enable button to activate the feature for your Gmail. Then go to the bottom and be sure to click on “Save Changes”.
Step #2: Choose Custom Fonts
The second step is to choose the kind of custom fonts you want to display in your Gmail. Open the MS Word Document on your computer and write some dummy text which you would use in your communication. Maybe, just write “Hey buddy, hope you’re doing well”. You can change the text later on.
Be sure to give some space after the text by hitting the “Enter” key multiple times. Then copy the text making sure it copies the space as well.
Step #3: Create Canned Response
It’s time to create a canned response. Go to your Gmail tab and compose a new message. Then paste the copied text on to the body of the new message. You will see that your desired font has appeared in your Gmail.
You’re just one more step away from adding custom fonts to Gmail.
Step #4: Save Your Settings
Then go to the Canned Response which can be found under the “More Options”. You will need to click on the “New canned response” to create your canned response. It will ask you save the canned response with a particular name. You may give it any name that’s convenient to you for easy reference in future. You may want to create multiple canned responses with different custom fonts in Gmail for future use.
Step #5: Test Your Settings
One you’re done with this step, it’s the testing time now. After all, no experience is complete without testing.
If you have any alternative email accounts in Yahoo or Bing, you can send a test email just so you know whether the trick is working effectively or not.
Create a new message, fill out the recipient name, and write Test Email in the subject line. Then just go to the canned response option and click on the saved canned response. You should see the exact message which you had saved while creating the canned message, and in the same font that was used in your MS Word Doc.
Now all you have to do is change the text and write a fresh email and hit the send button. When you can check your alternative email to see what it looks like.
Congratulations! You have successfully changed the defaults fonts in your Gmail.
Now live in the glory of being awesome! 😉
