Bold Font in Workbook Appears Non-Bold in PDF Printout

Issue

When a dashboard is printed to PDF from Tableau Desktop, bold text based on the light variant of a font, e.g. Calibri Light or Microsoft JhengHei Light, in the dashboard appears non-bold in the printout. 

Environment

Tableau Desktop

Resolution

Use the regular font, instead of the light variant, if the bold option is required in the PDF printout.

Cause

Light fonts already have a pre-defined weight, so the bold option is not recognized when they are printed to PDF.
