Weird Roboto Font in Justinmind

Loic Engelhard shared this problem 2 years ago
In Progress

It seems that you are not picking the right Roboto Font in Justinmind based on how certain characters are rendered (see attached document).


How can I select the 'official' Roboto from Google?


Thank you.

Any progress on this? We need to use Roboto in our prototypes and your version doesn't look right.

So an update just came out and the Roboto rendering issue has not been fixed.

Please look at the attached image. You can see how Illustrator renders each heavier face in the family in a nice even fashion as you would expect. However, in JustinMind the Medium face renders as heavier than bold or black... the all-important hierarchy is rendered useless. Roboto is the primary font that our platform uses and "medium" is the primary thicker font face we use... except i have to use bold instead... and Medium is not useful at all. And using Bold in place of Medium means I cannot use Bold at all.

This is something that needs to be fixed.

Agreed. The characters look correct, but the weights are off.

Hi all,

For further investigation from our engineers we will need the following information:

1. Which OS are you using? And version?

2.Are you using any font manager?

3. If possible, can you try installing the Roboto font directly from Google and let me know how this works for you?

Thank you in advance.
