Recently for some technical reasons I had to switch to “Myriad Variable Concept” typeface. Since then I noticed that paragraphs that use this typeface behave strangely when exported to PDF.
While the display output is ok, the text has random number of whitespaces between characters if I copy and paste it into a plain text file. For example if I select and copy the following line from my InDesign-generated PDF:
“Quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog”
The paste results in notepad looks like:
“Q u i c k b r o wn f ox j u m p s o v e r t h e l a z y d o g”
This is concerning because I am worried it is going to affect accessibility. I have this problem with all of the new "Variable Concept" typefaces.
