How to Add Fonts to Your iPad for Cricut
These are the steps I followed to be able to add fonts to my ipad and then use them with the Cricut Design Space app.
1. AnyFont app – Download on your iPad AnyFont app. It isn’t a free, but its less than $2, so very affordable.
If you have an android tablet, check out these font changer apps. iFont, FontFix, HiFont, or Fontster. I don’t have an android, so I don’t know how these work. But I am sure they work about the same as the AnyFont app.
2. DaFont.com – DaFont is a free place to get new fonts. Choose a font you want for your tablet. There are several places to get free fonts. This is just my choice.
3. Click Download – Once you find the font you want, click the download on the right hand side.
4. Click “Open in AnyFont” – In a perfect world, the download button should take you to another window that says ZIP and under it will say the name of the font and Open in Anyfont.
In my video, I couldn’t get this page to open. It kept opening another page, but it was blank.
After many tries, I decided to click the send button on the bottom. That sent it to my search engine and then I was in the right place again.
So if it doesn’t work for you, try that.
5. AnyFont – You are now in Anyfont and you should see your font in the list. But you aren’t done yet.
6. Click on name of the new font – Another page will pop up, click on the Aa icon.
7. Click on Allow – This is just a warning of what the website is trying to do.
8. Click Install – On the Install Profile, in the top right hand corner, click Install. This is installing the font on your iPad. You will click install several times.
9. Add your Apple ID password – better safe than sorry. This just makes sure you really want this done.
10. Click Next – AnyFont is just making sure you know they are installing the font.
11. Click Install – Even though it says the profile is not signed, I clicked install.
12. Click Install again – The next page is just asking you to choose install again.
13. The next page tells you that its DONE.
