What Segoe UI variations are available?

    Domanda

  • I see both "Segoe UI" and "Segoe UI Semilight" in CSS intellisense in VS11, but when I output both of these at 30pt that both look exactly the same.

    Segoe UI - Looks like Segoe UI

    Segoe UI Semilight - Looks like Segoe UI Semilight

    Segoe UI Semibold -  Looks like Segoe UI Semibold

    Segoe UI Bold - Looks like some base serif font

    Segoe UI Black - Looksl like some base serif font

    Segoe UI Light - This looks lighter than semilight, so this is a built in font?

    Segoe UI Semilight Italic - Looks like some base serif font

     

    So by tinkering around I can see "Segoe UI", "Segoe UI Semilight", "Segoe UI Semibold" and "Segoe UI Light" are built in fonts.

    Wondering if there's an official list somewhere.

  • Hi Harlequin,

     

    Windows 7 came with the following Segoe UI fonts: Segoe UI Light, Segoe UI Regular, Segoe UI Semibold, Segoe UI Bold, Segoe UI Italic and Segoe UI Bold Italic, along with the Segoe UI Symbol.

     

    Windows 8 Developer Preview adds Segoe UI Semilight, a weight in between Light and Regular. Segoe UI Semilight holds up at smaller sizes (down to 11pt) compared to Segoe UI Light (which needs 20pt +).


    Segoe UI Black, Segoe UI Semilight Italic, Segoe UI Light Italic, Segoe UI Semibold Italic and Segoe UI Black Italic are not fonts that ship with Windows at this point. 

     

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi H,

    What do you mean by: "Wondering if there's an official list somewhere."?

  • Good to know, thanks. I hope Segoe UI Bold and Segoe UI Black end up in future versions.

  • Wonder why Black was removed. Still use it once in a while in designs.

    But thanks for the updated list. Looks like double the number of variations as was in the Developer Preview.
