This is going to be simple – you just need to have a basic understanding of how saving files from a link works.
- Canva account. If you want to use the PRO elements then get a pro account. How? Not the scope here.
- Login and start a blank design.
- Use your browser web dev console to monitor transfers -for Firefox is the hamburger menu on the upper right corner -> Web Developer -> Network or just use the shortcut listed there for Chrome is basically the same: Option + ⌘ + J (on macOS), or Shift + CTRL + J (on Windows/Linux) – and click on the network tab
- Let’s download a font – Click on the Text box on the left side – it’s the fourth under Templates, Uploads, Photos, Elements. Found it? Good. Click on “Add a heading” and type your SSN. Or just gibberish – doesn’t really matter. Now look for the font selection box – on the left of the font size box and choose a font. Your text should have a new look and you should see some text scrolling in the network monitor box.
- Click on the Size header column to sort by size – decreasing and use the “Filter URLs” search box to narrow your results.
- Type the name of your font and right click on the text in the File column and open the link in a new tab. You should be presented with a download dialog asking you to save your font in WOFF format. Use Google to figure out how to use it on Windows. (.woff to .ttf maybe?)
- If the font family contains more than one fonts make sure you spot them in the list.
- The same principle applies to ALL assets. Use your in-between-the-ears space.
I know there may be multiple ways and tools to accomplish this goal. This is one of them. Good luck!
