Strange looking font in InDesign

Hi All,

I've activated a font in the web, it appears in InDesign, but looks a "little bit" weird. Checked the font on the creator's page, I think there is OK, for me it is strange. Is it a normal thing? Is it only a preview to buy directly form the creator or something wrong with my setup? All apps are updated. The font is DomLovesMary Pro, but for example Nori Regular also the same quirky thing.

Thank you for your answer.

Hi @Tündér Lala,

 

Thank you for reaching out. Would you mind telling us from where you've activated the font? Is it from the Adobe Fonts website? 

 

I see the font looks the same on the font's website, InDesign, and other Adobe apps.

Could you please share the screenshot of the font from the Creator page to see the difference?

 

We will try our best to help.

 

Thanks,

Harshika

Do you have View | Display Performance set to High Quality? If it's set to Fast or Typical, rendering and resolution get rougher (as a tradeoff for speed), and whole most of a page might look okay, a very complex font such as this might show more "roughness" than  simpler ones.

"little bit" weird - do you mean the rough edges? If yes, this is the intended design of the font.

@Jeffrey_Smith, I agree.

I think the font is designed to look like hand caligraphy with pen ink on rough paper.
