Variable Font not working properly
Hello, I am a type designer and am working on a variable script font. The variable font file work fine everywhere else except in Adobe products.
It appears the sidebearings aren't adjusting with the changes in width. Very odd. You can see whats happening in the first file. The second is on the Axis Praxis website.
I've spoken with Glyphs App developers and they said it's a glitch with Illustrator, so I wanted to bring it to your attention.
Thanks for reporting this issue, Illustrator team really appreciate this.
Unfortunately we are unable to reproduce this issue in house.
Can you help the Illustrator team to isolate this issue further so that we can nail this down?
1)Kindly provide small video describing the issue , Test file(Via File→Package) & Variable Font with which you are able to reproduce this issue and share with us at ShareWithAI@adobe.com in a Zip file. Please mention the title of this issue as the subject of the mail.
Thanks and Regards

I'm a type designer as well, I design them in FontCreator and FontLab7, in both there is no problem.
When I tried to export my fonts from both softwares and test them in Illustrator, the problem still persists.
Seems like this is a problem in adobe implementation of variable fonts.
I've attached a GIF to demonstrate the problem.
Please fix this soon,

I'm a type designer having the same issue! For me the kerning is not interpolating between masters. Every master uses the kerning data for an ultra-wide version, resulting in unsightly things like this. (On web vs. on Illustrator)
