Variable font doesn't...vary.
I just installed the new Macklin variable fonts from Monotype. They work as expected in Illustrator, and the "regular" cut works as expected in InDesign. However, the Macklin Sans font dosen't work well in InDesign: the prebuilt weights are functional, but when one varies the axis sliders, they seem to have no effect. Bug in the font or in InDesign?
InDesign 15.0.2, Mac OS 10.15.4

Unfortunately this bug has been in this app ever since Adobe introduced variable font support in InDesign. This bug was already reported here, in beta version forum as well. It seams Adobe is not interested in variable fonts even though they did collaborated on the standard.
It's funny, I was at the ATypI conference in Warsaw 4 years ago where the VF format was officially announced and Adobe representant was one of the proud speakers...
