in lines 194 of following path, there was a problem … In the provided code snippet, the issue was occurring in the remove_custom_font_google_url method. This method is responsible for removing custom fonts from the Google fonts URL array. The problem was with the line: php code: if ( $value[‘font_fallback’] ) { Here, the code was trying to access the font_fallback index of $value directly without ensuring that $value[‘font_fallback’] exists and is not null. This could lead to issues if $value[‘font_fallback’] is not set. To fix this, I made the following changes: I added a check to see if $value[‘font_fallback’] exists and is not null using isset(): php code: if ( isset( $value[‘font_fallback’] ) && $value[‘font_fallback’] ) { If $value[‘font_fallback’] exists and is not null, then $value[‘font_fallback’] is appended to $font_key. Otherwise, $font_key remains the same. By adding this check, we ensure that the code doesn’t try to access an undefined index, which could lead to the “Trying to access array offset on value of type bool” warning. Instead, it first checks if the index exists before attempting to access it.

The last plugin I tried before this had a paywall to upload more than one weight variation of one font. Unbelievable. Considering most good fonts have 8+ variations, I thought other plugins were probably running the same scheme BUT this plugin literally allows you to upload not just as many variations as you want but several different families as well. In the FREE version!! This plugin is a godsend

Thanks for making the plugin, integrated seamlessly for bold/regular fonts. If I make font styles/add the Woff2 italic assets as italics within the same font family as regular and bold fonts in the control panel, Elementor gravitates to the italic font and makes everything italic regardless if default/regular is selected in the style dropdown of Elementor editor. For now I have to make separate fonts for italic and regular versions and ignore the italic/regular selector in Elementor Page builder. Or probably forever because I see a bad review regarding this from 9 months time ago The good news is that if Italic is selected for the base font already set throughout the site in Elementor Editor, Elementor attempts to augment the Italic, just not with the assets provided since those have to be a separate font within this plugins control panel in reality.

It was a slow decline until finally it completely stopped working and changed all the font on the website to Times New Roman. Left a comment asking for support, no reply. I’m going to have to deactivate and find a different solution.
