Hi,

Illustrator CS4 bold features are not as flexible as Microsoft's. In that case, it needs additional references to be able to provide the bold feature in any type of font. To do this, the font has to be installed in the font folder of the illustrator. Copy the fonts from Windows and paste them in Common Files—->Adobe—->Fonts.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Hi Patricia K Walsh,

Yes, that's exactly what it is, a plug-in for Adobe Illustrator. If you want to know why this appears to be a separate feature, here are a few reasons:

1. Illustrator, unlike Microsoft Office programs for example, only uses fonts as they are.

2. That means, basically, that Illustrator does not simulate qualities in fonts, like boldness, which Office programs do by adding thickness in the display.

3. This is why a plug-in is needed to use the bold function on fonts.

Hope this helps.
