How to get the Chinuk Pipa font

Are you a reader here tired of seeing all those boxes where there should be Chinuk Pipa? Well hopefully today I can help you fix that!

Before we start, I should say that this will only work on desktop computers – so far as I know, nobody has had much luck getting this to work on mobile devices or mobile browsers. If you have any thoughts as to how we might get it going on mobile, comment down below! Alright, let’s get started.

1. Download the font

The font can be downloaded from GitHub here

First you click the title of the file you want to download.

This will lead you to a page with a download button. Click that download button.

This should start the download.

2. Install the Font

Once you have the downloaded the file, you will now need to install it onto your computer. Either head to your downloads folder or click this pop up on your browser.

When you click to open this file you should get something that looks like this.

You just need to hit the “install” button in the top left and follow the steps as they appear on your screen.

You can repeat this process for both the Bold and Regular Files.

At this point the font should work for you if you are using Firefox. If you’d like to test it here, see if this displays properly for you: 𛰣𛱇‌𛰚𛱛𛰅 𛰂𛱆‌𛰂𛱁

If you are using Google Chrome though there are a few extra steps you now need to take.

3. Change browser settings (Google Chrome only)

To get the font to display properly on Google Chrome you have to change your font settings. This can be done by first clicking those three dots in the top right of your browser here:

Then you will click “Settings”

You will then see a menu on the left side of your screen. You should click “Appearance

Next select “Customize Fonts”

And now you will have to change your “Standard” and “Serif” font from the defaults to “Duployan” by clicking the drop down menu. This is what I have changed mine too and it works well for me.

It should look like this once you are finished:

And now it should work for you! The font will still not properly display in certain programs (for example the “Discord” desktop application). If possible though, you can run these in your browser and it will then display properly.
