I'm using InDesign CC 2015 to typeset a document which uses a font with no native bold style. I understand that I can simulate this by increasing the font's weight. It's not as good as a real bold font but works well enough for my purposes when I highlight some text and use the floating menu for stroke etc.
But this would be tedious to do manually throughout the document and I am already extensively using character styles so I thought I could just make a new "bold" style. The trouble is when you go to the colors tab of the edit character style dialog, the option to change font weight is disabled. It is available in the paragraph style dialog but that is no good for me as this is inline text. Is there any way to do this? (Or is there an alternative way to simulate a bold font in a character style?)
Thanks in advance for your help.
