Find replacement font

Font substitution can be a big issue when you inherit a project from someone else who may have used a font that you don’t have and they didn’t properly package the file to include a copy of the font (we’ll learn more about this in job 5). I’ve found this website very helpful to give some suggestions for font alternatives. You can type in the name of your missing font at the website will try to find fonts that have a similar appearance. The site also gives you options for purchasing the font. Sometimes close enough is good enough and hopefully you’ll have a similar replacement within your font library.
