    1. go here to see all the Google Fonts, and many more than StreamLabs offers

    https://www.w3schools.com/howto/howto_google_fonts.asp

     

    2.  if you use custom HTML/CSS/JS you can use any font online wherever you host it.

    3. unsure what this ha to do with alertbox, isnt that an event-list thing?

    4. again possible with custom HTML/JS/CSS
    https://www.twitch.tv/videos/169711769 CSS3 animations were used here to do many things, including opacity changes.

    now, all that being said, i agree StreamLabs should offer 1, 2, and 4 form the platform without forcing everyone to buy some alert profile from someone, or having to learn how to code just to have simple alerts. Most importantly the preview of the font on the alert page is really simple that SL could do with a little JS/CSS to change the preview of the Google Font chosen like it changes the animation preview, and for the life of me can't figure out why it doesnt change the font-family to allow users to see it right on the alert settings page.

     

    It seems like they are using custom HTML/CSS/JS as a crutch and excuse why they can't add a few of these simple things to the website to make it better for first time users, and is driving MANY people to those other alert services that do make it easier for streamers to set up amazing looking alerts without having to know how to code.
