Google Variable Fonts Bug when Font has Variable and Static Files

Activating variable fonts doesn’t work properly in Fontbase when the family has both static and variable font files for the font family. See screenshot of Inter below:

Per the Google Fonts Developer API:

By default, a combination of static fonts files are returned for variable fonts instantiated at standard positions. If capaibility=VF is set, The variable font file is returned instead of static ones along with the available axes range metadata. sample example: https://www.googleapis.com/webfonts/v1/webfonts?capaibility=VF
