After an update, Arial Bold is displaying condensed while all other varieties of Arial are working as expected. Any ideas on why this would be happening?
Any help would be appreciated.
I am not sure what you mean by an "update." I know that Microsoft removed some of the previously included typefaces from Windows 10. If you are using a Windows computer, and have recently updated to a newer version of Windows, it might be that included fonts no longer include the version of Arial that you had been using. The Arial that is currently installed may no longer have a "bold" option, but instead have a number of different weights, like Medium, Strong, Black, etc.. I don't do much in Illustrator with typefaces, but I know in InDesign, if I have text that is formatted using the bold button, and I change to a typeface that requires me to choose a specific weight, I will get error messages and funny looking type, like what you are seeing.
