Question: How do I make fonts look bold when there is no instance for a bold font?
I have a collection of Adobe fonts from when I was working in PageMaker. In PageMaker I could choose "BOLD" and the font with a single instance would appear bold.
Now that I am using InDesign, I still want the font to appear bold, but InDesign does not allow it.
Example: Park Avenue (only 1 instance) and Park Avenue Bold (as made false bold in PageMaker). Also the Biffo font -- Adobe does not sell a bold version of Biffo.
If you insist on faking bold you do it by adding a VERY small stroke to the type, but it looks much better to just find a new font available in all the weights you need.
Thanks for your quick reply. I guess I will have to choose other fonts.
