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

    Update - the fonts are now fixed after re-importing them!

    5.3.3p1, still broken here.

    Oddly, it was working fine (in 5.3.3p1) until I switched over to a different computer to develop on. Now fonts are broken again.

    I can also confirm that this is NOT fixed. I am amazed by _what_ and _how_ Unity is doing that they randomly break lots and lots of stuff from release to release. Really unhappy with Unity at the moment.

    Just to be sure, is there ANY convetion we should follow for the Font component to catch up on the proper face files? For instance should the variants be called with hyphen or underscore or what? (e.g Arial-bold Arial-italic Arial or Arial-regular?)

    I can assure you, this bug is not solved in 5.3. Bold letters still gets wider, not bolder. Am I missing something?

    I'm using .otf fonts and whenever i'm trying to use the bold tags for a rich text, i get the same result. The letters inside the bold tag are only widened, but not bold.

    This issue persists on unity 5.2.1
