Font Appearance

I need to use Romans font to meet client requirements. I can not get it to publish with black letters, as I can with Arial. Starting with an Arial font, and changing only the font to Romans results in a grayed out text when published. Even changing the pen to a heavier pen does make much difference. Any thoughts?

Does it make any difference if you make it 'Bold"?

No, it looks just the same.

A little research shows even Revit users have this problem - apparently something due to the nature of the font. So I might need to find a substitute which I have not yet found.

ROMANS is the TTF version of an old 1980's AutoCAD font created for use in Pen Plotters. It is my understanding that you wil not find a bold version since the way to make it bold was to use a "thicker" technical pen when you sent the DWG to the plotter.
This font should not be a standard for any office.

I agree, but it is the standard for the State of New York Office of General Services

Agree, they are using standards that is based on one particular software package which is "prohibited" under government rules. But this is so absurd that I think you will not be able to convince them that they are wrong on having that "font" as a standard.

RomanD is the "Bold" version of RomanS. Try to use it and see if they can detect the difference.
