No, i just want for the font to match correctly,
`fc-match "Isoveka Extrabold Extended Oblique"` should output
`iosevka-extrabold.ttc: "Iosevka" "Extrabold Extended Oblique"`
but it doesn't output that. It outputs `NotoSans-Regular.ttf: "Noto
Sans" "Regular"`, which is wrong since i do have that Iosevka font

Ah, got it. You set the wrong query string then. What you want to would be:

$ fc-match ":full name=Isoveka Extrabold Extended Oblique"


$ fc-match "Isoveka:style=Extrabold Extended Oblique"

Though I'm not sure what the real issue was then. I presume that you wanted to reproduce your issue on some application with fc-match?

The only way i'm getting the correct font is with
`fc-match ":postscriptname=Iosevka-Extrabold-Extended-Oblique"`
i just want the output of:
`fc-match "Isoveka Extrabold Extended Oblique"`
to be identical to the output of:
`fc-match ":postscriptname=Iosevka-Extrabold-Extended-Oblique"`
(because matching like this with the psname outputs the correct font)

Really sorry that my previous question wasn't clear enough.
