Of everything Canva offers, fonts always seem to be the biggest topic of conversation. From uploading your own fonts to finding equivalents to suit your project, it’s not a perfect process, but it’s at least one that’s available and more than suitable (especially in light of everything else the design platform has to offer).

Another option I’ve found useful is checking Twitter. Given organizations are much more responsive to service questions on social media, many people turn to Twitter to ask about a particular font. Here is an example about finding that Arial replacement.
