How Do I Preview Fonts in Figma?

When it comes to designing a website, choosing a font is one of the most important decisions you can make. It can have a huge impact on how your site looks and feels. Fortunately, Figma makes it easy to preview fonts and see which ones will work best for your project.

Figma is a powerful design tool that allows you to quickly create and iterate on designs. It also has a great selection of fonts to choose from, including both system fonts and Google Fonts.

To preview fonts in Figma, simply select the text layer you want to change the font for and click on the font drop-down menu in the right-hand panel. Here, you’ll be able to view all of the available fonts and see how they look with your design.

You can also customize how each font looks by adjusting its size, weight, line height, letter spacing, color, and more. This allows you to get just the right look for your design without having to download any separate font software or plugins. Additionally, Figma makes it easy to access and apply custom fonts from external sources like Adobe Fonts or Typekit if you need an even wider selection of typefaces for your project.

Applying Fonts in Figma
Once you’ve chosen the perfect font for your project, applying it in Figma is easy. All you have to do is select the text layer again and click on the “Apply” button next to your chosen font in the right-hand panel.

This will instantly update all of your selected text layers with that new font style. You can also save time by applying multiple styles at once using Figma’s “Bulk Select & Apply” feature.


Choosing the right font for a website design can be tricky but Figma makes it easier with its built-in font previewing tool that allows designers to quickly view different typefaces before making their selection. Additionally, customization options like size or color are available so you can get just the right look for your design without having to download any extra software or plugins. With these tools at hand, designers can quickly find and apply a perfect font style in no time at all!
