I'd like to use the Roboto font in one of my documents. I load it like this:


It should support variants regular, bold, medium, black, light, thin.

I need to change between Regular and Medium variant, but it doesn't seem to work for me. I tried both

\usepackage[sfdefault, regular]{roboto}
\usepackage[sfdefault, medium]{roboto}

and they look the same; besides resolving this still doesn't offer solution to using BOTH in one document. Any thoughts what I am doing wrong?

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Do you really need to use pdflatex? More flexibility is provided by xe-/lualatex and fontspec. – TeXnician Aug 3 '17 at 9:22
  • I was already checking it out, but yes, I need pdflatex. – temi Aug 3 '17 at 9:26

  • Tried the exact same thing with medium/regular, doesn't work. Maybe a bug in the package... – temi Aug 3 '17 at 11:16

The medium option changes the bold font (\bfseries):

If you want to change the normal font (\mdseries) use the options light or thin.
