I'm using FMP14. When I transfer my FM file to FMGo on my ipad, the text I have as Bold doesn't show up as Bold in FMGo. All other text formatting works (Underline, Italics), but not Bold... Any thoughts why?
What font are You using?
FileMaker needs to have the specific Font that you have on your layout on the Device where you are using FMGo. If you use a Font that not exist I recommend you to stay with web safe fonts like Arial, Helvetica, Verdana that exist on all computers and devices.
Try making the font size on the layout a bit larger. If the text size is small, the difference between bold and plain style may not be observable....
When I am designing for iOS (and Windows/Mac) I've found it useful to prepare a test file with all the typefaces I am considering, together with their variations like bold, italic, etc., (with a descriptor field with the typeface name and variation next to it, with a notes field to describe the sometimes surprising observations on the differences).
I then can view the often radical differences when I load this onto the different platforms. It helps avoid surprises down the road, as iOS in particular cannot render a number of "conventional" desktop typefaces, or their variations, and will substitute another typeface. Also note this is a moving target, as the iOS typefaces change with the different versions.
Hmm, my text sizes are around 24pt.
Yep, so the problem was I was using Tahoma as my font, I changed it to Ariel, and it worked!! Thanks everyone for the help!
