Anyone know why
@font-face
loaded fonts are not taking when adding custom branding CSS to a studio?

1. I’ve got my
skin.css
being included via
sanity.json
, which is loading properly.2. I’ve added my fonts to the
static
folder, in a
fonts
sub-folder.3. I’m importing them in my
skin.css
at the top, like this:
@font-face {
  font-family: 'Sang Bleu';
  src: url('/fonts/SangBleuSans-RegularItalic.woff') format('woff');
  font-weight: 400;
  font-style: italic;
  font-display: swap;
}
4. And I’m referencing them in my CSS like this:

.pt-editable * {
  font-family: 'Sang Bleu', Georgia, Times, serif !important;
}

But no matter what, it’s falling back to
Georgia

no errors loading the fonts, no CORS issues, etc.

no idea why this isn’t working

can also confirm that the fonts are loading in just fine:

I admit that I often cheat and use google’s imported format as a working example personally. Perhaps try woff2 format with your local font and or swap in a different font file locally to see if it renders. Alternatively, try testing with a public google font to try to isolate the issue to either a stylesheet configuration or font-file problem or a build problem.
Here is a clip from google’s roboto import sheet:


/* latin-ext */
@font-face {
  font-family: 'Roboto';
  font-style: normal;
  font-weight: 100;
  font-display: swap;
  src: url(<https://fonts.gstatic.com/s/roboto/v29/KFOkCnqEu92Fr1MmgVxGIzIXKMnyrYk.woff2>) format('woff2');
  unicode-range: U+0100-024F, U+0259, U+1E00-1EFF, U+2020, U+20A0-20AB, U+20AD-20CF, U+2113, U+2C60-2C7F, U+A720-A7FF;
}
/* latin */
@font-face {
  font-family: 'Roboto';
  font-style: normal;
  font-weight: 100;
  font-display: swap;
  src: url(<https://fonts.gstatic.com/s/roboto/v29/KFOkCnqEu92Fr1MmgVxIIzIXKMny.woff2>) format('woff2');
  unicode-range: U+0000-00FF, U+0131, U+0152-0153, U+02BB-02BC, U+02C6, U+02DA, U+02DC, U+2000-206F, U+2074, U+20AC, U+2122, U+2191, U+2193, U+2212, U+2215, U+FEFF, U+FFFD;
}

I am not sure off the top of my head if explicitly defined unicode ranges are necessary, but this may be another thing to try in your troubleshooting steps.
