Font Jumps On Load (Even With Swap!)

Three custom fonts uploaded to Webflow - Playfair Display, Lato Regular, Lato Bold.

All set to ‘Swap’ as per Webflow’s recommendation.

BUT… I’m getting CLS issues, which when investigating seem to be due to unstyled fonts loading


Google really doesn’t like it:

Any ideas how to fix?

Pre-loading the font perhaps?

The weird thing is I have another site like this that uses even more custom fonts and yet doesn’t have this issue…

Here is my site Read-Only: LINK
(how to share your site Read-Only link)

If you’re not sure about CLS or aren’t comfortable using Chrome, check out this tool.

It makes a gif showing you what part of your website is causing the CLS.

And on mine, it’s the fonts…


Sorry to bump, but after another day looking at this, I am no closer to fixing.

Any help will be greatly appreciated :slight_smile:

Still looking for an answer… help!


I have reached out to Webflow directly about a week ago but no reply…
