Lead paragraph, unable to change font weight

I’m playing with (and enjoying) Foundry, but while changing font weights in the control centre, I find I’m not able to influence the font weight of lead paragraphs.

I’ve set the weight of Helvetica Neue to 400 in Base font, Headers font and 400 also for the Display weight. In the paragraph stack the font weight displays correctly until I select Lead Paragraph. the text gets bigger as expected but the weight is much thinner. There seems no way to control it.

I realize this might be a feature of the paragraph stack, but it feels like I should be able to control it.


You’re in luck. This is a feature that will be coming to the Control Center stack for version of Foundry. It and a slew of other features are in beta testing now.


I will wait patiently for the update.
