Bold font not displaying

Post by lynneconnolly »

This is connected with my previous question. I have a fully updated version of AWP.
When I bold a font or a piece of text, it's not displaying as Bold. It changes the kerning slightly, but that's all. I changed the font, thinking it might be that, but it isn't. Bold just isn't showing. I've tried repairing the program, and even deleting and reinstalling it, but that isn't working to solve the problem.

Atlantis does not render character glyphs, either bold or non-bold. Windows does.

It would be good to know the font name, have a screen capture, and even better a sample document file.

It's Bookman Old, any size of the font, and it doesn't matter which Style I use, none of them are showing as bold. I tried another font, Garamond, and it was the same. But both show fine in Libre Office and Softmaker's Textmaker, the other word processors I have (for Track Changes).

I can reproduce this with the “Bookman Old Style” font under the DirectWrite rendering engine. Will be corrected soon. Please check for updates next week. Thanks.

Yeah, I know about having to use LibreOffice for its Track Changes feature. Atlantis is my preferred word processor. Fast and uncluttered; great with styles; wonderful with footnotes, endnotes, and pagination. It is a fantastic application.

But no Track Changes !

Every time I use LibreOffice and Track Changes, I think: "Oh, I just cannot do without this!"
