Fonts and body tag in custom code, do not show at designer

I have added a font-family value at body tag in Head Custom code.
Then go to the Designer and the values are not respected. It just shows the Arial font.

Can you please help?


This is NOT a bug.

Custom code only applies to published sites. You will not be able to see them in the designer.

If you want to see it in the designer, apply a custom font properly:

Site Settings > Fonts, Upload a font or use Typekit.

Thanks for your reply,

So this is not good practice to put font-family there…
What is the right way to do the above? Upload the Helvetica Neue ? What about the other fonts in the path?

Hi @geliop, great question, check out how to use custom fonts: https://help.webflow.com/lesson/adding-custom-fonts.

If any further questions, please let us know :slight_smile: Custom css and code is always shown on the published site. I am here to help :slight_smile:

Great reply but no real answer :slight_smile:

That thing with custom CSS only on published site would be a great improvement if you could make it work in the designer and makes sense that a designer/developer would expect it to work like that.

Other than that, you have not answered at my question above: How would I implement a font path of more that 2 fonts? Is this possible?
