Hello Shape5, I recently went about picking a couple of suitable fonts for website.

While trying a few, some made the little arrow to indicate the additional columns to a menu item to be overlapped, I discounted these, must have been over half of them.

After hours of trial and error I settled for PT Serif, all good until I added the weight I wanted, then arrow is overlapped with text. It's not a huge weight and standard bold at 700. It still functions fine, just the arrow cannot be seen. It's smudged into the offending menu item.

How come the arrow doesn't move along and keep its margin or padding..I tried inspecting the element/firebug and I can't affect it at all. Any ideas?


Lastly, font related again - I chose Helvetica as my site font and put in Neue as the site font style in Template backend.

But, when I inspect any of my website body text with element/firebug it its shows, "Helvetica", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif.  Would like it to indicate the intended primary font of Helvetica Neue. It's convenient to do it in template manager but maybe there's a css file I could write it to?Which one if so?(for all body text, headings have different font). Simply where do I get at all the site fonts in server css files.

(Joomla 3.4.4, Corpway Vertex 3.7)

Kind regards

Moved to Pt Sans 700 with Roboto which solves everything.
