Ok so I just purchased a new font family, the Paradise Point font family, I’m confused about the use of the TTF
fonts; Paradise Point Inline Variable and Paradise Point Variable?
How do I use those? Should I be using them? They don’t look to show up correctly in Corel Photo-Paint 2019 nor CorelDraw 2019. Just some generic-looking sans serif font. Does anyone have any knowledge of how to use this variable font?
I contacted MyFonts where I bought it but they sent some sort of canned response about how font families show up under software, the different styles, and such under the main/base font name.
Thank you for contacting us.
The font is correct, its the Window system you are please let me explain:
Fonts are displayed in two fashions:
either as single, individual fonts, or in families. A single individual display would list each of the fonts you purchased just as that ~ individually. This is beneficial so you can see specifically what fonts are available. You avoid accidentally selecting to ‘bold’ or ‘italicize’ a font if it’s not a selectable option.
With the ‘family’ version the base font of each ‘family’ is displayed (usually the roman) and the bold, italic, and Bold italic has to be ‘applied’ by using the ‘B’ button (Bold), ‘I’ button (Italic) Or both ‘B’ & ‘I’ (Bold Italic). This may vary slightly depending on the application in use.
Additional information on applying font attributes (bold, italic, bold italic) should be available in the Help menu of the application you’re using.
Let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks for using MyFonts!
I’m going to send them another request for help, but I thought someone here might know about this and someone else might run into this problem.
