Our fonts do not contain any style-linking by default. We choose for this approach to optimise the fonts for a design workspace and to improve cross-platform compatibility. This means that in applications which use the ‘Bold’ and ‘Italic’ buttons, you need to select every style through the font menu instead of clicking [B] and [I].
Although we are aware that style-linked fonts can be useful in office environments – where applications like MS Word are used frequently – most of our font families are not suitable for the drastic grid of 4 connected styles. Because we want to keep our library consistent, we decided not to implement style-linking.
If you’re in the situation that the lack of style-links is problematic, contact us to see if we can provide a custom solution.
