hope you're doing fine

I don't have a deep understanding of latex, but I'm trying to use the Metropolis theme for Beamer.

I'm running a Miktex (portable) distribution on my windows machine.

My problem is with the Fira Sans font, I installed the package fira using the Miktex package manager, but when I use the command pdflatex to compile my presentation I don't see that font used like the presentation from the demo.

Can anyone help please ?

Thank you.

    If you want to use the fira fonts, don't compile with pdflatex, but with lualatex or xelatex. The metropolis theme should give you a warning with this instructions in the .log file. – samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz Nov 24 '17 at 15:19

    Did you use \usepackage[sfdefault]{FiraSans}? – Ulrike Fischer Nov 24 '17 at 15:26
  • @samcarter: Why should someone not use pdflatex with the Fira font?? – user2478 Jan 17 '19 at 19:47
  • @Herbert Metropolis uses the fire font as default IF compiled with xe/lualatex (not when compiled with pdflatex). So the easiest solution to use fira fonts is to not compile with pdflatex, because then fire fonts will automatically be used and one does not need to do anything. – samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz Jan 17 '19 at 19:56

I found a simple solution, to use XeLatex/LuaLatex instead of pdflatex. But anyway I found an error that I fixed by Uninstalling the package fontspec and reinstalling it.

Now everything works fine.
