    Clicking “More fonts” means a popup window will appear. And this window enlists a series of fonts you can pick from. Just keep scrolling down until you can find your preferred font. You can tell when a specific font is selected when there is a checkmark beside the font’s name in the left column while its full name will be listed in the right column of the popup window. Also, you need not choose just one new font because you can choose more fonts. Click every option you like and add new custom fonts to your fonts list by pressing “OK.”
