Variable fonts not working

Recommended Posts


I installed a variable font on my computer and it's working in browsers and in MS Word, but in Affinity Designer it's just show as "regular, regular, regular, regular" instead of "light, regular, bold, extra bold".

Also, Affinity Designer can't put text in italic if you don't have italic font installed... I know in Word it can fake italic.


Thank you

Affinity applications do not support variable fonts at this time.

Affinity  applications do not support faux type styles. If you make a character style with a skew angle of say 11 degrees, you can achieve the same effect as faux italics.
