Developers seeing different font weight in Inspect panel than designers with editor access

Hi there! We ran into an issue where designers with editor access see one font weight in the inspect panel, but developers selecting the same text layer see a different font weight in the inspect panel. Any ideas regarding how or why this is happening, and which is correct?

Screenshots below (had to redact some info):

Thank you in advance for your help!


Does anyone also still have this issue? Because we do.

Yes it is occurring in our view as well. In a font we are using, our designers see 700 weight but in dev view it shows 600.

Hi, yes we see something similar.

I think it has to do with the font naming differences between font files for desktop (.otf) and server-side font files (.woff). Why font companies don’t reconcile all the weights with names is a mystery.

Same here.

I am seeing this issue as well with most typefaces
