I'm afraid Apple has made changes in iOS 14 that blocks apps from using custom installed fonts if they're not using the modern font access API. A fix is in the making and will be available in Mellel 5.0.5

I've got the same problem in several other applications on my iPad Air after upgrading to iPadOS 14. Thanks for the information.

Any time estimate on this fix? I will be starting a new project next week and am deciding between Mellel and Pages.

Thanks.

The issue is actually already fixed but we are working on other issues. Hopefully we will release within a week or two.
