I want to change the weight of my fonts, but the "bold" setting on my font does not change the weight of my font.

Designations such as "bold" in html and "font weight: bold" in CSS are deactivated automatically in TypeSquare. Using these settings does not alter the appearance of the fonts.
In lieu of the "bold" setting, we provide multiple weights for each font, allowing the users to choose the font with the exact weight desired for finer adjustments of font weight. This enables more precise control of how a page is displayed than simply using "bold." Give it a try!

Example:
"Shin Go" has 8 weights available: EL / L / R / M / DB / B / H / U.

The number of available weights is different for each font.
