Variable Font Family Name


#1

When exporting a variable font, ‘Regular’ is added after the Family name.
I tried the ‘Variable Font Family Name’ parameter, but it didn’t change.
Is there a way to fix this?


#2

The “Regular” shouldn’t be added when you have a Variable Font Family Name parameter. Where did you specify it? It has to go to the Font section in Font Info.


#3

That’s where I have specified it.


#4

What version of Glyphs do you have?


#5

2.6.1 (1199)


#6

Or use variableStyleName to overwrite the Regular.


#7

Where exactly did the “Regular” show up?


#8

At export it shows up directly after the Family Name.
If Font > Family Name is Example, then it becomes Example Regular.
The instance naming is untouched.


#9

It might just add the instance to the name? What is the file name?


#10

There is no instance named Regular. The file name is the family name, plus a number (version).


#11

In the file name, you mean? Or where?


#12

No. In the exported font.


#13

So you mean the font menu of the app where you use the font?

Can you have a look in the font file to see that is in the name table?


#14

I received the font files and having a look.
