3. Open Font Book and click the Add button or press Command +O to open the Add Fonts menu. Choose the Google fonts zip folder.

4. Font Book will scan the download. Once it has scanned all the fonts you will be given an option to import these fonts, as well as any warnings for fonts that are not as complete or missing files. For any fonts identified as such go through and decide whether or not to add them depending on the warning.

**HINT:  You may use the ROES Desktop Client to verify a font has been properly installed on the computer running the ROES Server.  Add a template with the attribute 'styledtext' to the root and add a text node.  If the font is displayed properly in the Desktop Client, that font will be available in the ROES Server when rendering.
