Oh gosh, the dark mode version of MacRumors does not render well quote codes... The text there is unreadable.

I’m so excited and have been anxiously awaiting the update.

I love iWork an embarrassing amount. It’s my primary tool of choice, even in the enterprise.

I’ve been struggling with this too. When you click on Add Fonts in Settings, it just takes you to the App Store home.

Can you explain how to add fonts from Adobe, et al? Thanks so much for your help.

Am I using it wrong or does Dark Mode feel useless in Numbers?

This is odd, why no automatic downloads (Mac)....:confused:

Well, my screen caps were not the right answer to be honest, my apologies.

The thing is that the custom fonts are advertised as "Use custom fonts installed from the App Store" ('https://apps.apple.com/us/app/pages/id361309726')
I cannot find out yet how that is to be done...

I however found an old article, stating system-wide font installation trough profiles, which is including the final disclaimer:

Installing fonts onto iOS is similar to installing them in the early days of Mac OS X. It’s risky, it’s a pain, and it leave a mess. But despite that, I’m glad it’s possible, because it also lets you do fancy design work if you want, or just to decorate your favorite text editor so you feel more at home.
