    I created font assets with creator and about to make bold text with TextMeshPro.
    But when I applied bold option, nothing happened except for increasing the spacing.
    It was well applied when I create legacy text or TMP text with basic font assets.
    it is caused only when I make TMP text with font assets that I created.
    I think this is the problem of font assets, but can't get what is exactly wrong.
    Does anyone know about this problem?

    Can you post an image of the font asset inspector where I can see the Generation Settings and more importantly the Sampling Point Size and Padding? Also make sure we can see the Font Weight table and the value for boldness.

    P.S. Bold is simulated by adding Dilation to the glyphs. However, if the sampling point size to padding ratio is too small or the bold value specified in the font asset is too small.
