This can't be the first time this issue has come up, but there doesn't seem to be anything about it in this mailing list's posts, on the LyX Wiki, or anywhere else.
Today I installed the latest version of LyX from www.lyx.org on another PC under Vista, and got the same result: Typewriter Bold looks bold in LyX, but not in the dvi previewer, nor in the pdf file. So the problem is shared by two different versions of LyX (1.56 vs. 1.6.2) running under two different OSes (CentOS 5.3 vs. Vista Home) with different implementations of LaTeX (Tetex 126.96.36.199.el5_1.2.i386 vs. MiKTeX 2.7.3105) and dvi previewers. Could the problem lie in the typefaces themselves? Does LyX use the same typeface for Typewriter as it does for Typewriter, Bold? If so, what can be done about it on both Linux and Vista? -- View this message in context: http://n2.nabble.com/Typewriter%2C-Bold-is-indistinguishable-from-plain-Typewriter-tp2759473p2787971.html Sent from the LyX - Users mailing list archive at Nabble.com.
