[Bug 2019906] Re: 23.04 : condensed, bold and black fonts can't be used for interface and title bar


Yes you are right, it's not limited to condensed font variant.

23.04 ( which does not make use of gnome-shell but does use mutter and

  activities and app's views ) but not in other app's, not in the whole
  interface as it used to do.

  In dconf-editor I did not find entries regarding « global » interface

  Is this intended behavior ?

  Ability to change font type and size is also a matter of
