Figma doesn't let me use the "Segoe UI Variable" font

Hello,

I’d like to use the Windows UI design kit provided by Microsoft on the Figma community, but I keep running into issues caused by Figma’s lack of support for variable fonts.

The kit in question uses Segoe UI Variable, which is pre-installed on Windows as a system font. Knowing that Figma still doesn’t support variable fonts, I also downloaded and installed the static version of it, but… Seems like it’s causing some conflict that Figma doesn’t know how to resolve, meaning that if I try to use the font, Figma won’t let me, graying out all the text options and bringing up a non-functional “Missing fonts” prompt.

I’m really not sure how to fix this. As I’ve previously stated, the variable font file for Segoe UI is a system font, meaning it cannot be uninstalled to potentially solve the issue. Is there anything I can do? Or am I forced to wait until the Figma team adds variable font support to the app?

I have the same problem. :frowning:

Same here. The variable font isn’t supported, even though it’s windows 11 system font. It doesn’t work even after downloading and installing the font manually.
