Variable fonts crashing Maintype

Post by cpking »

I installed a variable font from Google fonts (Noto). When I add it, several iterations of the font are shown (i.e., various weights). When I install it, the font loads, but Maintype instantly shuts down. If I restart Maintype and uninstall it, it does that, but also instantly shuts down.

anyone else?

I thought there are a lot of them, but I will take a look later.

Please be more specific, as there are currently 92 Noto variable font families.

We have successfully installed several variable fonts of the Noto family, so we don't know why it crashes on your side. Can you please provide reproducible steps?
