  • Which option does NOT include a Variable Font?

    Variable Fonts are split in two separate font-files: Upright and Italic. This is due to achieve the best interpolation result.

    Currently Variable Fonts are supported by: OSX 10.5+ / iOS 3.2+ / Windows 10+ / Android 5+.
  • How to install a Variable Font?

  • Do Variable Fonts work in my Design Application?

    At the moment Variable Fonts are supported by Adobe InDesign 2020, Illustrator CC 2019 and Photoshop CC 2019. Every font comes with a Standard Version in single font weights (as Desktop-, Web- or App-Font). This ensures the compatibility in all possible uses.

    Web browsers good in displaying variable fonts; within Design Applications, there can be some bugs and rendring issues. However, for example Adobe is keen to update there software.
  • How can I use the Variable Fonts in InDesign?

    Some of our Variable fonts have a special version for InDesign 2020+. This because the Variable Fonts support of InDesign 2022 is (still) not perfect.

  • Can you export single font weights for me?

    You have found the perfect setting of width and weight for your project. Now you like to have this setting as a single font file. Unfortunately, we can not export single font weights since this would be too time consuming, sorry.
