Google fonts - synchronization and missing fonts

Am I correct in thinking that Google fonts are not automatically synchronized when new fonts are added by Google?

On that assumption I just deleted and re-added the Google fonts Provider in FontBase to get everything up to date but some fonts still appear to be missing. I now have 5213 Google fonts in total but specifically I don’t see Martian Mono. I suspect there must be others missing.

I’d like to know this too.

Hello @razorpig, thank you for your post and welcome to the forum :pray:
Yes, you are correct, as Google does not update the fonts available via their Fonts page and the ones that can be accessed programmatically at the same rate.
The best way to get the desired font in this case would be to download the specific one from the Google Fonts webpage and use it as any other font file in FontBase.
Hope this helps and thank you again,

@yuriy OK that’s great. Thanks for the clarification.
