Is offering 600 fonts to choose from simply more likely to confuse a buyer
Completely agree with you. This is something that should be in theme requirements i think
or cause further styling issues?
For this i included in my last theme(unfortunately not selling well) different controls for top,bottom, left and right padding, line height, font-weight, text-transform of main typography items like post titles, meta, content, single titles, pages titles, main menus…etc
Including the Google fonts gave me more work because i thought that if any buyer decide to change the font, he will need this padding, line height, font-weight and text-transform control, because each typo is different.
Now i have it all done so maybe i will continue including this feature, but you have made me think a lot
