# 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).

Thanks!

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

C:\Windows\Fonts\arialbd.ttf
