Description of problem:
LibreOffice doesn't support Variable fonts.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install google-noto-sans-vf-fonts say (make sure if you don't have google-noto-sans-fonts installed because both has same family name)
2.open LO and select Noto Sans
3.type something with bold decoration.
No decorated as bold
should be decorated as bold
There are "variable" property in fontconfig to see if a face is capable for VF and "fontvariations" to see what parameters has variations. those two properties are set only for entire space. but for an instance. an instance looks similar like standalone typefaces.
Is there something already existing (using harfbuzz or whatever) where this is already working for comparison ?
Pango supports it.
For the basic cases of the named variants this should have worked out of the box, but apparently we've outsmarted ourselves and overwritten FC_INDEX in out fontconfig pattern which is getting used to transport that info around.
Got something working here
