A typeface is a very crucial aspect of visual design. The moment you get the perfect font to go with your design it becomes almost impossible to switch to a closer alternative.
Luckily, Figma has an App for both Mac and PC which means the custom fonts available on your machine will be available in the Figma App. However, in the case of Figma on the web, you will have to install the Figma agent service on your machine to be able to access local fonts on the web version of Figma.
