Illustrator ignores variable font kerning
As described. Illustrator is not interpolating kerning data. Using a font that works well on everything but Illustrator. Left is view in Chrome, right in Illustrator.
Thanks for reporting this issue. Are you facing it with any specific font? Can you please share the details of the font and value of kerning that you applied in snapshot?

A similar problem (not kerning, but spacing) is with any variable font I use in illustrator (26.0.1)
I use "Myriad Variable Concept" with "368-weight" and "86-width" set, as you can see the spacing becomes funky on that point.
This happens with some more random points with all different variable fonts I've been using, even in Hebrew.
This doesn't happen in the browser or in the font software I use, only in Adobe products.
Sure, share the same on firstname.lastname@example.org

Can I privately send you the font? I am not doing any custom kerning, Illustrator is just applying the kerning for one master to every master.
