slider plugin and shortcode trouble on pages

Apologies but this will kind of be two questions in one.

1. In my revolution slider I cannot figure out how to use the "late" font (a google font) in my revolution slider plugin. It should be easy being as that font is default for my theme. You would think anyway.

2. For some weird reason whenever I create a slider shortcode, either in the themes slider editor or in the revolution slider plugin, when I paste the shortcode into the "shortcode before content" box on the backend of my pages it doesn't show up right on the page.

It's all messed up looking and for the life of me I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong.

Any help here would be immensely appreciated.
