This bug is still in 7.4 beta
The reference to Google Fonts has been removed unless you actually try to initialize the canvas designer with the style editor enabled.
Will the presence of the reference prevent anyone developing while offline?
@JimbobSquarePants You will most likely see the same problem as the reporter, if you actually try using the canvas designer with the style editor enabled while not online, since this scenario depends on a Google Fonts to work.
Normally you would not see any issues though while editing, as we changed it so that only this very specific scenario where it needs the font, tries to actually load in the font. Before it tried loading even if it wasn't needed.
@claus Hmmmm... Personally I would try to avoid any scenario where I would have to be online to develop. It's not conducive to productivity.
Working while travelling by train or plane where cheap or free wireless is not available for example should be possible. I have frequent connectivity issues at home even and that should stop me being able to work which would be incredibly frustrating. Umbraco, in my opinion should be entirely self contained with no external requirements once installed.
@JimbobSquarePants Normal backoffice editing will not in any way be affected by this and still works perfectly while offline.
This is a very specific scenario where you:
1: Use the 'canvas editing mode', which is not really in any way what I would consider as "done" .. and I honestly can't even really remember right now how to enable it since noone barely uses it.
2: Also have the style editor enabled for canvas editing mode, which supports picking fonts directly from the Google Fonts library.
It would not make sense to have to load in (and keep updated) 500+ Google Fonts in the Umbraco codebase (and on top of that I'm not sure if we are even allowed to do that) - to support a feature we believe is very rarely used by most users, in very rare scenario.
@claus That's cool then. Thanks for clarifying.
@JimbobSquarePants no problem! Thanks for understanding!
