Lately I'm unable to change the font weight in some fonts like Roboto, I checked and the font is active with all it's styles in Adobe Fonts but XD only let me use the Regular version and the selector for font weight is grayed out.

 

I'm using Windows 10

Hi Alberto,

 

Sorry to hear about the trouble. Could you please try using that font in a different application and check if you are able to change the font-weight?

 

Regards

Rishabh

Hi there,

 

Sorry for the delay in response. Could you please confirm if you have tried re-installing the font? If not, could you please try that and let us know if that helps or if you need any further assistance.

I've got the same issue. The fonts work with every other Adobe application I have but not XD. Even after re-installing the fonts, I am  not able to use other weights apart from regular. I cant even click on the options as it wont allow me to.

I had this problem as well, but restarting my computer fixed that for a different font. However, it only shows two of the four activated weights. Installing the Google Font files locally gave me the same problem as  sagenitesh. XD seems to have had several issues with weight selection on Windows since it was released, it would be very helpful if fonts worked as well as they do in other Adobe applications.

Hi Nikhil,

 

Sorry to hear about the trouble. Could you please check if the font-weights are listed as a separate font instead of showing under the font-weight dropdown.

I posted about a similar issue yesterday, but now I can't find that post. My Roboto font works fine in Illustrator but in XD it is using the wrong font family and won't let me switch it out. 

 

I can't uninstall Roboto (Windows 10) as it says it's in use. Restarting computer doesn't help. I also uninstalled and reinstalled XD and that did not fix the issue.

This just happened to me. WITH ROBOTO! Literally 20 minutes ago, I was changing font weights. Same document, same program. Have been working on it consistently. Suddenly, the weight is grayed out: I can't change anything from bold to regular, or from regular to bold. So frustrating.... why would this happen?
