Chrome not showing proper font for my Portfolio website
Posted by: Mr Downtown

I've been using my downtime to redo my freelancer website, and decided Adobe Portfolio was the easiest way to go (at least for now). I've chosen Open Sans for the text, but Chrome on my desktop computer doesn't show it. Instead it subs in the default Times. Looks fine in other browsers, and in Chrome on my laptop.

What could be wrong? If you visit [chicagocarto.myportfolio.com] does it seem to be in Open Sans?

Related query: what do people like for an easy, free browser check when building websites? I'll probably try to hand-code a very similar simple site and host it myself, but the mobile world has changed web design a lot since I last did such things.

Open Sans for me in both Safari and Chrome on my MacBook running Mojave

Chrome has frequent font cache conflicts with the system font cache.

Do a safe-boot-and-reboot.

Reboot the Mac and immediately following the boot-chime or screen-refresh, hold down the Shift key on the keyboard. Keep holding the key down until you see the Apple logo appear. It should take some extra time to start up and you should end up at a login screen with the words "Safe Boot" appearing on the upper-right.

Click the "Restart" button from the login screen.

This time, do not hold down the Shift key. Let it boot normally.
