Bold font .ttf file is not detected properly for certain fonts




Priority: 3Not yet prioritized for a release


Severity: 0Severity not yet defined

How to reproduce:

1. Open attached project
2. Open scene Scene.unity
3. Try switching between Normal and Bold font style on gameobject Main Camera/Canvas/Bold
- Note how the font only gets wider, but not properly bold
4. Import attached Bold version of the font
5. Try switching between Normal and Bold styles again
- Note how it still only gets wider, even though the Bold version of the font is present
- A possible workaround is to use the Bold version of the font directly, rather than through Font Style

    I retract my previous statement. Apparently reimporting the fonts does fix the issue. This was mentioned below in this thread, but I had overlooked it; my bad.

    For all those wondering: even just clicking an imported font will apply the fix, even without you changing anything. You will notice that when you click away, it will ask you to apply changes, even if you didn't change anything.

    The issue still exists for me on 5.3.1f. It happens (as far I can tell) on all OSX devices and all Windows versions newer than Windows 7. It happens both in the editor and in standalone builds.

    Please reopen this issue and give some priority to fixing it. It is currently making our project's UI look quite unsightly for no good reason.

    Issue is still present in 5.3.2f1 on Windows 10 (is working correctly on OS X 10.11).
