      We rolled the pro features into the free version and plan to move live editing functionality into the Customizer, now that the API is maturing. We have big plans for Typecase and hope to add support for new font foundries and better font discovery tools soon.

    “With over 650 fonts to choose from, the hardest part of using it is deciding which ones to use.”

    Which is why this approach is cr*p if you DO care about user experience.

    Know what? 650 fonts sounds good but that’s it. What plugin and theme developers absolutely refuse to hear is the vast amount of users actually asking for “easy typography”, that is to say pre- and well-made combos because, guess what, they don’t know how to do that right.

    So they Google that and end up using combos others have been using.

    Even worse, there are Google fonts which you should not use at all for body copy and those fonts make for a large part of the catalogue.

    So why not diving a duck about user experience, developers? You know that may harder to sell than the 650 number, you don’t know how wrong you actually are believing that. I can guarantee a plugin/theme with combos will be a hit.

      @John I totally understand your position. I am a designer first and my #1 priority is to provide people with beautiful custom-set typography within all our WordPress themes at UpThemes. We actually include a license for fonts from Typekit in some of our new themes, which limits the user to fonts which are very specifically selected for each theme. Typecase is merely a customization option for users who may not want the fonts we’ve hand-selected for their theme or are using a different theme and they want to override the fonts within it. Just like anything in the world, it can be abused, but I’m sure this plugin is more helpful than harmful.

      Thanks for your vigilance in upholding the beauty of typography on the web. I certainly appreciate your spirit.

    Is there a plugin that can select a font that is available from a local folder on your site? The cumbersom alternative would be to make a wp child theme out of wp/ twenty-fifthteen and then edit the style.css. Hope to avoid that.
