Please, oh PLEASE do put some emphasis on this with your development team! Users really should be able to choose from all fonts available on their device... More and more applications are providing this option, or the ability to import fonts.

Hi Paul (and Mishell, if you have a chance to see this post),
Our development team is planning to research the fastest (so the wait is the shortest possible) for fonts right after resolving all requests coming for the recent release of Outline v3.8. So, in the next development cycle I will be able to update you on the matter with some more details than just 'thank you'. Please note that on Step 1 it will be info about the time frames of a release featuring fonts, not the release itself. But still, it will be a step forward. Please stay tuned. Check our Facebook page at fb.com/outlineapp. Product news are published there earlier than in other places (including newsletters).

We're starting our new investigation to prepare for adding new fonts to Outline. And we would like to know how you guys use the different fonts: - How do you use it in other note-taking apps; - How would you use it in Outline.
Feel free to share your experience here or write to me directly at email@example.com. All the help is much appreciated!
(a) First, I like to use my own font as default font rather than being forced to use whatever app developer deems is the right font for me. For example, I like to use default corporate font for taking notes (b) Sometimes in order to draw attention to the notes block embedded within a large body, I use different font for that block (eg. select Courier New for that block) (c) There are times when I am typing my thoughts for sending them later as text to a larger mailing list.. in such case I would like to use a different font such as Verdana, to type my notes in so I don't have to worry about taking care of font at the time of sending (which happens at last min generally)
I use fonts extensively in my daily routine and the ability to use different fonts within a note is pretty critical.
Right now if for instance, I want to write a doe snippet to include in a note, and have it differentiated (and properly viewable) I have to create that snippet in something else with the correct fixed-width font I want, then cut and paste it into Outline. This is very wasteful.
Support to use any font, directly, that I have installed is a critical must-have feature.
My main use case for a different font would be a monospaced font (e.g., Menlo) for including code snippets in my notes. The purpose is two-fold: (a) to distinguish code within the note, and (b) to match the spacing and alignment of the code as it appears the a coding environment from which it was copied (code editors almost always use monospaced fonts).
