Actually, I just kept on trying and found something really weird here. I'm using the font Segoe UI (the default font) and bold and italic won't work. What will work is 'Light Italic' and 'Black' instead of just Italic and Bold. Also semi-bold seems to work...
If anyone could explain why this is I'd be so very happy
Can you provide a bit more detail please?
Like what XD version are you using?
Were you using a simple text object or a text-area object?
Could you please provide a gif of the said-issue?
I'm using version 0.6.16.7 Beta on Windows 10.
I'm using the text object and all I'm trying to do is change the text to bold. It stays bold when I have the text selected but immediately when I select something else (and blur the text) it goes back to regular font. This does not, as I write, happen with Black or Semibold.

Just to be clear:
you create a simple text object
you set its weight to Bold from the drop down menu
you then set the text object to have background blur
You de-select everything and it goes back to Regular?
i attached the gif with the steps i took in trying to reproduce your issue.
Please correct me if there's any difference between what i did and what your actual steps were...
