Typekit styles don't correspond to weflow styles


#1

I'm not sure if this is a bug or just something that could use a help topic to understand, but here goes:

I often see a lack of correspondence between the variants available of a Typekit font, and the way they are presented in Webflow. Here's an example, Pragmatica Web:

  1. Extra-Light and Light are mapping logically.
  2. 400-Normal is mapping to Book*. A bit confusing, but not the end of the world. But between Book, Medium, Regular, Roman, and any other names that foundries apply to various weights between Light and Semi-Bold, it's tough to know what you're going to get until you see it. So it would be great if Webflow showed the names as provided by the foundry in the font. For example here, 400 - Book.

Cheers,
Allen

Hey Allen, it's definitely not ideal right now. We're mostly just keying off the font weight value (e.g. 200, 300, 400) and have pre-set values for each of those weights regardless of font choice. We'll be adding much better font support in the future, and it will be managed directly in the designer (as opposed to what you see now with having to jump to the Dashboard for any custom font changes).
