Google Roboto Font not working

I imported my Sketch file and all the text is messed up. This seems to be because your do not support key Google fonts including Roboto. I cannot remove Roboto from my PC, it's used pretty much everywhere. What is the fix? Here's hoping this is one as otherwise I'll have to find a different tool.

If you are having problems with the Roboto font, look for the Roboto font inside the Justinmind folder and install the one that comes with Justinmind. To do this:

1. Navigate to this file path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Justinmind\Justinmind Prototyper [version]

2. Open 'Java'

3. Open 'Fonts'

4. Click on the Roboto fonts to install them.

1. No java folder. Just C:\Program Files (x86)\Justinmind\Justinmind Prototyper [version] and Fonts folder.

2. Roboto fonts do not appear visible in my Windows font folder. This is apparently a known problem with no obvious solution in Windows 10. And I've tried a variety of approaches folks in Windows forums suggested. That means I cannot delete the old version and without doing this, adding your absurd "special" version of Roboto is not possible. i've now spent over an hour on this issue. 30 more minutes and I'll find another tool. This is absurd. Why can't you just use the standard Google font like every other tool. Roboto is the most used font on the planet for web and mobile dev.

Okay, the fonts render correctly simulation mode. But not in the editor. FWIW.
