SLABTEXT quirks



Best Answer beardedavenger , 24 June 2013 - 01:14 PM

Yeah not sure what to do about the fonts on iOS this is currently a bug in PageLines. There are plenty fallbacks in place you can see them in inspector. About the other bug, yep that's the script. Sometimes it just doesn't fit the text all the way.

Nick,

 

I am very appreciative of all of your efforts here in the PageLines community...your stuff is awesome!

 

I am using SlabText, and noticed that when using the default League Gothic (a fantastic typeface), you see a serif font in iOS (not cute).

 

Also, if you change the default to a Google Font, the first time you navigate to a page with SlabText on it, the font is not slabbed all the way to the right edge of the content area.  If you click the same link, or click to another page with SlabText, it will go full width and not regress until the next unique visit.  Not really a big deal, but not ideal at the same time.  I was wondering if you had been aware of this phenomenon.  Also, League Gothic is by far the best slab text typeface, but maybe if there was a way to choose a fallback typeface for other browsers from Google Fonts.

 

Just my $.02.  Thanks again.

THanks Nick.  I noticed that using something like Arial Black alleviates the issue.  Not my favorite choice, but a safe one.
