Using local fonts are the most efficient way to integrate fonts in a web site.
Sadly all your nice “Typography” section in the template manager become useless if local font are used.
• Having a third choice on the font family pane to integrate “Local Fonts”.
— You should have a “Local Fonts” choice that make the font family pane take in consideration whatever Local font is used — Maybe you even have a system where, when Local font are used You can point the custom css or scss file that call these fonts to even have a preview of them.
I really say “Locally” — The goal is to have the font WITHOUT any “LIVE” Call to Google — Everything happen on the server of the site.
The way I do is always the same, download the specifics fonts I need, put in a folder (your template/fonts and add the CSS call to them in my custom.scss file.
In my normal work I use most of the time trusted Google fonts.
What you show there is weird and interesting at the same time.
First, I want to know if this technic work with Google fonts, because everything shown in this scroll down menu (Choice of fonts) are Google Font and they are NOT in your local template or media folder. Meaning that any choice there call the Google font on Google server and not locally.
I doubt that what you show work WITH Local Google Fonts ?
- What Happen if I download few styles of Google font e.g. Open Sans and try your method, what happen with the already include Open Sans, are the call will be local or live to Google servers?
