Lato font rendering error

I’ve come across a strange issue with the Lato font. It seems to be rendering very strangely, but only when you’re zoomed in close or if the font is large.

Here is a screenshot of the font in illustrator when zoomed out

And here i have zoomed in to 100%

If i enter outline view using Command+Y, the error isn’t there

enter image description here

Unless of course i Create Outlines (Shift+Command+O)

enter image description here

I’ve re downloaded the font and I’m still getting the same issue. Seems to be an adobe issue as I’m having no trouble with the font in Word for example.

Might be a long shot but I’d like to know if anyone has come across anything similar, and if so what did you do?

Any help appreciated.


I was having the same issue and when I investigated my fonts it notes that the version I had installed was for web only. I found a desktop version of the font and now I can convert the text to outlines without any issues. I hope this helps

Here is a link to where I downloaded the font.
