    Default Re: Thin fonts display too THICK in all browsers

    The CSS for the Roboto font doesn't include a reference to the google web font, so the iPad can't reference the font.

    I suspect you need to do something more in designer - I don't have the latest version to advise you further.


    .Thin_Head1 {font-family:'Roboto';font-weight:250;font-size:60px;color:#0463A0;letter-spacing:-0.0em;}

    Thank you for looking at this.

    It seems there is something missing in the way the page is being saved.
    The browser is just displaying the font as usual.

    I will have to take up the issue with Xara.

    Which Xara software, specifically are you using? It must be the latest one.

    OK, I'll let someone with the same product step up to the plate. It's always a good idea to make a tiny example file for people to experiment with.
    Good luck.

    I just previewed all weights in both fonts and the thin versions are not displaying properly. http://www.gwpriester.com/font-test/

    I recommend using the Light versions which do appear to display correctly. Actually the Roboto Black is not displaying correctly either.

    I'll report this to Xara.

    Even the light version appears extra thick for that font face. From a design perspective this is a real downer.
    Thin fonts, when used in large sizes, help balance the page while still commanding attention.

    Xara needs to get this to the top of their list.

    I have sent them a heads up. I know that there are issues with some of these fonts. The main issue is they are from Google and they are free and some fonts are better than others. That said, I am not sure why they are not displaying correctly but when I hear back, if Xara does not post here first, I'll pass along what I learn.

    Just wondering why you have created a wordpress website and then used an iframe linked to a xara created website?
