Typeface makes the targeted font automatically available to Art Text. The font will be temporarily activated, which means that it will be deactivated when you close Typeface (depending on your current settings).

If you want to keep the font persistently activated, you can click on the activation indicator to deactivate the font. Then click it once more to persistently activate the font.
1. Drag and drop a font from Typeface to Art Text
