Even though there are thousands of different fonts out there in the world, only a handful of them are supported in all browsers and across all operating systems. So, those are the only fonts we can currently include in the Animatron Editor - otherwise, fonts in a project that look great on one user’s computer might not display well on another user’s computer, and that wouldn’t be great.
