Just to double-check, if we have obtained a font here at CF that has personal/commercial licensing, we are allowed to upload it to Canva to use? the licensing document is unclear.

Hi there. I purchased a font via Creative Fabrica called Wonderful Sunset. But when I upload it to Canva, I cannot type out any numerals or symbols? Please advise?
