Variable fonts 🙏🏻
Please add the variable font feature asap in InDesign - I've just looked for it as I am using a variable font for a logo in Illustrator which I want to transfer across for some publishing in!

Please add support for variable fonts in InDesign! Thank you for all your hard work.
Great technology! Cannot wait for it to be a feature!
Stephen Nixon commented
Reallllly need this support to exist!
Thanks for your work on it, Abhinav. :)
I'm hoping that your team can prioritize it, as it's definitely one of the most important recent developments in typography, and InDesign is one of the most valuable use cases for variable font control.
Please do it! We definitely need it. Thank you!

Come on, whyyyy? (Nicolas Cage screaming into heaven)
We use variable font as corporate. Doing all text layouts in Illustartator looks like nightmare to me.
Adobe guys, make it happen, please! Or just give us an approximate time.

+1. This feature will be super beneficial in terms of streamlining my Idesign-Illustrator workflow.

I have a lovely three-axis (soon to be four-axis) variable font in development, which I would like to test in InDesign. Looking forward to the new functionality one of these days!
when??? it's 2019? please give a date? You guys drain every designer cash wise and you can't even have the app updated
How is this not available yet?? I'm having to outline whole paragraphs in Illustrator and paste in inDesign. CC is EXPENSIVE, do something.

Looking forward to this new feature.
How looong it will take oh nooo. The future is waiting on you,. YOu are loosing users.
InDesign is the main desktop publishing and typesetting software and Illustrator is the software that was created for Vector paintings/Illustrations as the name says, so why Illustrator has this feature instead of InDesign?

Just ran into this issue while trying to work with client branding across Illustrator and InDesign...I could use this feature ASAP! Thanks for working on it, Abhinav and the Adobe crew!

It's difficult for designers working across digital and print mediums to agree on fonts when vfs aren't supported in all Adobe programs. Please prioritize this!

Hi Abhinav, great to hear. Any idea about a time frame, when we can expect it to be implemented? No pressure ;)
