In addition to what Amalia suggest there's also a free plugin that allow Confluence to use custom plugin. Here's the link to that plugin.


Are you referring to the custom font file for PDF? A complete instruction for this is here:

However, if you'd like to change the font used in Confluence UI, you can change that using CSS as explained more in this doc:

Hi thanks, the problem I have is that the font we are using is stored on our homepage, however some browsers don't allow cross domain font face calls. We need to be able to upload the file to Confluence and reference it? i.e. The font must be called from a local url.

Not sure if this works but perhaps you can try:

The css can be add into Confluence Admin > Stylesheet

I would like to set up a new font in Confluence (download version) - is there a way the font can be installed in confluence and then referenced using the font name only? e.g. upload the font 'cool_font.ttf' to the Confluence 'font' directory and then reference the font name in the CSS file URL.

@font-face {
	font-family: cool_font;
	src: url('cool_font.ttf');

You can always put this font inside <confluence-install>/confluence folder and this font can be accessed by http://<confluence-url>. So for example, if you put this font inside <confluence-install>/confluence/font then the url will be http://<confluence-url>/font

Maybe not fully related, but how to manage fonts used by presentation (presentation view in wiki)?
I have a "Brandon Text" font used for presentation, and it worked before upgrade of confluence to 7.4.
Confluence is on linux server, and I have fonts in a typical /usr/share/fonts directory.
