Hi, I have strange problem with font Quicksand.
I install font family (light,regular,bold,semibold) on Windows. In AE, AI, ID, PS everthing is fine work like a normal font.
But in XD when I open project or make new one, and choose quicksand font
nn family font list I have (regular, regular, regular, bold, regular). First think okey, something display wrong. No metter what I choose is always regular font.
Reinstal font , reinstal from another source
Reinstal adobe XD
Update adobe XD

We will try our best to help.
Specific font: Quicksand.
I download font from google fonts site, from other source and resoults was the same (this same font file from google site work perfect on mac). So In my opnion its not a font file problem
I have newest version from JUN16 2020 update, before with MAY19 2020 update, same resoults
I opened the font files in FontForge, generated them as TrueType, ignored all warnings and errors and reinstalled it.
After that I got Quicksand working in XD.

Sorry but this isn't a 'fix', it's a hotfix for users, this is a global issue on Windows, have it with other fonts too (George for example), it works perfectly in all other programs and on MacOS, except on XD and Windows (as usual)
I am having same problem with Inter font
Same here with INTER FONT, downloaded from Google Fonts. The 9 weights work fine on other Adobe softwares, but on XD (latest version) whatever weight I choose, only the boldest is usable, and they appear weirdly as Regular, Regular, (...), Regular, Bold.
Wow I am having this same exact problem with Inter Font. Mine also shows as Regular Regular Bold Regular, is not included as a "Missing Font", but is also not showing up correctly in the text. Were you able to resolve this?
Same here 😕
I've tried this method. It worked for my previous laptop but it is not working for my new laptop. Please help. @
I think the issue is with downloading and installing Google fonts, specifically .otf files. OTF file installs just don't seem to work in Xd - Illustrator, Photoshop and other Adobe products work fine with them.
To get around the issue in Xd, I have to source the .ttf file(s) from the source Github repo of the font (font source is usually linked to on the Google fonts page, under the 'About <font name>' section). Installing the .ttf file seems to work fine. For the Inter font, you can download the latest release .zip file (source) and grab the install file from the 'Inter Desktop' folder.
Alternatively, if the font is available on both Google fonts and Typekit, you can install the Typekit version and that will work.
It's clear that this is an Xd-specific bug with fonts on Windows.
Thanks for reaching out and sharing your findings, I am sure it will help other community members. Having said that, let me assure you, I'll share your feedback with the Engineering team.
