I set up a project, went to Settings, added in 3 Google fonts, and chose the regular font weight for each. Later I went back into settings and also chose a 700 font weight. However, the additional font weight does not show when I go back to Designer, add text, and then choose a font weight. Only the regular font weight shows.
So my workaround is to highlight the text and choose Bold. But this is not best practice. I should be able to use the 700 font weights… which I can do if I export the code and fix it. Not sure if I can fix the CSS right in Webflow, I haven’t tried. But those are options if you are having the same issue.
I’ve also been having issues when I go back into a paragraph and change the color and bold on a portion of the paragraph, maybe not at the same time, I might do color and bold at different times. Sometimes it changes the whole paragraph even though I only highlighted a portion of the paragraph. It seems to get confused. My guess is that somehow the end tags are not being placed properly. Again, I will fix this when I export the code, but be aware of this issue.
Be aware of spacing. If you highlight a word only, without the space before or after the word, and change the color or bold attribute, then later you go back to the word and by mistake highlight the word AND the space either before or after the word, then it REALLY messes stuff up. Webflow gets confused and you might not get the bold/color you expect. Webflow really should consider changing its code to truncate the space before it bolds/colors or undoes the bold/color. Or at least warn me that I’ve messed up and told it to bold/color the space when before I did not.
Yes, the coloring / bold issue is probably my fault. But you could do more to help me not make this mistake, please. Maybe a popup showing where my begin/end tags are within the paragraph with the ability to move them to where they really should be? I can see the color/bold issue being a huge problem to overcome if I am overlapping attributes by mistake. Sorry. Bad bad user.
Oh, and by the way, I get different results editing in the desktop view than when I switch to a handheld device view to edit the text only in that view. Not sure why, but again probably something I did. I can’t get the bold / color to change properly in some paragraphs when highlighting a portion of the paragraph. But I’ve made so many changes to the paragraph, the CSS is probably pretty messed up by now. My only hope is exporting the code and fixing it. Just wish you would help me not make stupid mistakes.
