Embedded bold and medium on export to PDF shows as light


Recommended Posts

I am exporting from Publisher (v2) but is not showing the font correctly when I open in preview.

I am using a Google font Quicksand bold for heading and medium for text.

Example page from Publisher:

Opened in Preview seems to be light for both

If you’ve installed the variable font, uninstall it and then install the individual weights from the ‘static’ folder instead.

I think preview must need the static fonts.

It’s not just the preview. The Affinity apps don’t properly support variable fonts yet.

Thanks.

 

BTW I didn't mean the Affinity preview, I meant Preview the PDF viewing app. After exporting it showed the correct font but rendered everything as light.

Hard to understand for what purpose or possible advantage a company names a product with common words like "Preview", "Designer", "Photo", "Publisher" …? It's even worse because possibly more confusing than e.g. "Genious", "Intelligence" or "Tomorrow". Will a newborn ever be named "President"?

The names (from Serif, at least), are "Affinity Designer", "Affinity Photo" and "Affinity Publisher" :)
