Variable Font Help

Hi there,

I’m developing a variable font for a university project, and I just have a question (sorry if it has already been asked, I can’t find the answer anywhere online!).

How do you change the names of the sliders in the font? Everything I do always comes out as ‘Weight’, even when it seems to be set up as something else? I want to have specific names for each variable, is this possible, and if so, how?

Have you read this:

I have—for some reason, no matter what I change it to, the value remains at weight.

You need to add a “Axes” parameter. It defines the names for the axes.

Hi there,

I do this and change the name and it still remains Weight on export.

Can you send me the .glyphs file?

How do you test the font?

Hi there, sorry for the delay. Figured it out, was just being dumb haha
