Taco, thanks for the answer. I managed to change the whole math family into bold, but I can't get the following example working: \switchtobodyfont[iwona-light,ss] $$normal {\bf bold}{\bfm bold}{\bfmath bold}$$ \bf and \bfmath result in cm fonts, \bfm has no influence, no matter what I tried to

Hello, What exactly is the ConTeXt alternative to LaTeX's \mathbf (switch to bold or bold italic math fonts)? (Btw: is it better to use bold or bold italic for typesetting vectors? We use overrightharpoonup, so I don't know what an international standard says.) I understand the main commands
