When using a Citect font which has a TrueType Font Type and a BOLD attribute (e.g. Arial,B), text displayed using the Citect font looks different from text displayed using the equivalent system font.

CIT has confirmed this to be a problem in Citect for Windows versions 3.4/4.2 and 5.0. This problem has been fixed in version 3.4/4.2 Service Pack F, and will be fixed in a future release of Citect.


Set the parameter [ANIMATOR]BoldWeight to 700. See "Parameters: animator" - BoldWeight in Citect help for instructions on how to set this parameter. Alternatively, add the BoldWeight=700 entry to the [ANIMATOR] section of the Citect INI file as follows:


This parameter is used to determine the weight of a bold TrueType Citect font. The default for this parameter is 600 which results in bold fonts having a different bold weight to the equivalent system font.

Notes: This problem is only evident for TrueType fonts.
