So the one I use probably most often is T for text and that pops in a text box and it tries to predict your font. So sometimes I don’t know if I, I may have branding set up, or actually, now it’s pulling in because now that’s the only font in this design. It tries to predict what kind of font you’re going to use or it’ll pull in whatever you’ve set as your brand font.

[00:01:43].390] – Kate Danielle

Yeah! They save so much time and especially the dropping in a text box.

[00:01:49].060] – Liz Stapleton
