I am recreating a logo from an image in Inkscape to have it as a vector graphic. I need to write some text in Microsoft YaHei Light, which I have already installed in Windows. In Microsoft Word I can write in Microsoft YaHei normal or bold, and then I have another font called Microsoft YaHei Light which also has options for normal or bold. However in Inkscape, I only have one Microsoft YaHei font and a styles table with two columns which are CSS and Face, and the following three rows: weight=290 and Light, Normal and Regular, Bold and Bold. Bold is visibly different from Normal, but "weight=290" does not change anything. Any idea how to fix this?
- You could add your needed text in Word
- Export/Save the document in PDF format
- Open/Import the PDF into Inkscape
- Continue turning the logo into a vector
This will hopefully give you the result you are after
