It seems that v19 only comes with 3 Variable fonts and their variations.

Where to get more variable fonts?

Does typekit have variable fonts?

Will all Adobe fonts be updated to incorporate variable features?

Thx.

Hi Phil,

Yes, there are just a few variable OpenType fonts installed (I count 7). The specification was announced last year so things are still early. You can look here for more info on updates: The Typekit Blog | Variable font technology from Adobe

Photoshop uses the font installed on your machine. CC 2018 font test finds 665 fonts on my Windows 10 machine.

Thx for the reply.

Where does Skia Black come from?

does Typekit have any other variable fonts?  (I couldn’t see any when I looked, but may have missed)

That is just 'Skia' actually and it is included in macOS, I believe. I don't know what Typekit currently has, but I can't find anything there either. Maybe ask them on twitter?

thx,

Photoshop CC 19.0 ships with 6 Variable fonts (not all Adobe fonts are variable fonts), please see the list below. We have a new icon in the font menu to identify variable fonts.  At the moment we don't have any more Variable fonts on TypeKit Server. Skia is a GX Variation font which predates OpenType-Variable font spec.
