A Font is an asset that can be used with Text Actors (especially with the UMG UI Designer) to add visual styling to customized user interfaces. The following pages will cover, in more detail, what Fonts are, and how to use them in Unreal Engine 4. Additionally, you'll find some how-to guides, showing you how to import, create, and use fonts within UMG.

By default, UMG text widgets use a font that ships with Unreal Engine. This gives you something to work with out of the box so you can get started quickly. However, this built-in font has some limitations; for example, it only supports a small set of languages. For most projects, especially those that require UIs with non-English text, you'll want to import your own custom fonts into Assets and set up your text widgets to use your fonts.

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
