Odd font behaviour in sidebar / article list

Postby sandstrom » Thu Oct 30, 2014 12:38 pm

Vienna - 10.10 Yosemite

Playing with font settings in the Preferences (‘aspect’ - second tab); this does weird things.
For ‘articles’, select ‘Helvetica Neue’; the Normal, regular weight should be selected by default in the Fonts panel. Now choose the Helvetica Neue Light. Watch how Vienna uses the italics face (weight is Regular, as expected - that is: next face by weight, but Vienna select the italic face) for Unread articles… Read Articles display correctly. The same thing happens with other fonts that have multiple faces (e.g. Avenir, Avenir Next, Helvetica). Font families that only have two weights behave as expected, afaict.

In Horizontal Layout, the whole line displays using an italic face for unread articles.

(Apple bug or Vienna ? I don’t have any other app that allow customisation of those types of lists).
