    Adjusting font weight?

    Mark754
      Hi, I'm not sure if this is the best forum for this question, but since I'm using Fireworks, I'll ask it here.

      Is there a way to adjust font weight when entering text that will be used to create a graphic (besides the bold command, that is)?
      I'd like to adjust a font to be a bit heavier than it is bolded - somewhere halfway between standard and bold. I know that with CSS you can adjust weight in 10 increments from 100 to 1000, with 400 being standard. Is there any way to do something like this in Fireworks?

      Thanks.

          Mark754,

          Try doing a copy and paste of the text and then playing with the opacity
          of the copy.

            and/or use the strong antialias option on either just the text or the=20
            copy below

              Thanks for the tips.

              The copy and paste suggestion leaves the edges a bit jaggy, no matter what opacity and antialias setting I use on both copies. But the strong antialias works pretty well.
