Some languages require specific fonts to be included in the template, so that the language characters display correctly. This guide shows how to add support for Japanese to a template, by using the font named Noto Sans.

Note: The following guide assumes you are using the template designs that are provided within the Order Printer Pro app.

Add a Japanese font to your templates

1- Open Order Printer Pro (Shopify admin > Apps)
2- Go to the "Manage templates" page
3- Click the "Edit template" button on the template you would like update
4- In the code section, scroll down in the code until you see the CSS styling towards the bottom:

5- Add the following code, just below the <style>  line. 

@import url(',400,700&display=swap&subset=japanese');

See below example after making this change:

6- Update the font-family  CSS rule found just a few lines lower, to use the new font. 

To do this, change the text:
"Open Sans" 

To be:

 "Noto Sans JP" 

Make sure the quotation marks are included.

See the below example after making this change:

7- Click "Save" and you are done.

Now your template will load the needed font for displaying Japanese characters correctly.
