The quality of the rendering of fonts, particularly at small sizes and particularly with light coloured text against dark background is noticeably poorer than in either InVision Studio or Figma. I'm using the latest version of all three, and have tested different fonts, colours, sizes and backgrounds. Here's an example of what I'm seeing. Is this a known issue?fonts.png

This isn't just to do with exporting - it's in the design environment itself - sorry, not sure I made that clear initially.

Hi Jon,

 

Thank you for reaching out. It looks like the font is not looking similar in different application. Could you please tell if it's happening with a specific font or with all fonts? I would request you to please try with some different font and share the results with us.

 

Thanks,

Harshika

As I said in my original post, it happens with all fonts that I've tried. Will post more examples.

Hi there,

 

Sorry for the delay in response. We would need few more details from you for further investigation on this like-

 

  • A sample file with me over a private message?
  • What is the OS & XD version you're working on?

 

Please let me know if you face any issues with this.

 

Thanks,

Harshika
