In a previous project on the same Mac I used Palatino (TT) with Bold. On a new project the Bold option does not show as available in the drop down even though I am sure that the bold version of the font is available. Only Bold Italic and Italic show as available. The only way I can get a word to be Bold is to paste a bold word in from another document and then retype the word, which is very tedious. Obviously I am a bit of a newbie so would appreciate guidance on how to find that pesky font.
The (TT) after the font name usually indicates you have more than one version installed. Perhaps the bold is part of the other version.
