Bold for fonts don't work in Synfig?

Hi, when I add a text layer, everything actually works very well. But now I want to make the text bold. When I choose bold on the weight field in Synfig the font is not changing the weight.

Look here:

Here increased:


The (not-released) development version handles font family, style and weight properly.
The 1.4.x version (and previous) only accept the real file name in Font Family parameter.
(And, if you don’t know, each combination of family+style+weight is actually a different font file).


It works with the complete path of font file for Font Family and the filename for font and bold weight combination like you said.

instead of
C:\Windows\Fonts\arial.ttf or just the font name “Arial”

synfig font family2
