    • No, it's not.

      Not sure why you want this though? If it's just that you don't want he page to be visible until the font (and the rest of the page) has loaded consider this instead https://rockettheme.com/forum/gantry5-for-joomla/274668-how-to-make-pages-fade-in-on-load-in-gantry-5 .

    • Not everything that Google recommends is right, and it does say "consider" not "you must".

      Preloading a font will slow down the initial display of your site as it will cause the font to be loaded before other aspects of the page are rendered.

      The only way you could get this option would be to override core Gantry 5 files (not YAML).

      Personally I still think it's better to hide the whole page until it has fully loaded as I suggested.
