Fonts on Android

Thank you for the reply. But, I don’t see how this helps. I have two fonts:
After running FontInfo(), I see this:
When I set the font of my stack to "Barlow", everything (bold or not) comes up as Barlow Bold.
When I set the font of my stack to "Barlow Regular", everything (bold or not) comes up as Barlow Regular.
Only thing I can think to do is to run thought EVERY object in my project and set the textFont of that control to "Barlow Bold" or "Barlow Regular". Then there's text fields with mixed text... Do I run through every text field and change the font of all bold text? There has to be a way to map "Barlow Regular" to plain text, and "Barlow Bold" to bold text. I must be missing something.

When I run into this problem I use the routine below to enumerate all the
fonts and their styles.
If you have both a "Plain" and "Bold" style for a font then you use the font
name and set its style to "Bold"
If you use a "bold" base font then its "plain" style IS the bold font and
setting its style to "Bold" will do nothing.
put the fontnames into fnames
repeat for each line tfnt in fnames
put "*"&tfnt&cr after tlist
put the fontstyles(tfnt,0) into fstyles
repeat for each line tsty in fstyles
put space & tsty & cr after tlist
delete char -1 in tlist

I am able to get a custom font installed and running on a Android device.
But, how do you handle the font family? Included in my app is
"myfont-Regular.ttf" and "myfont-bold.ttf". When the app launches, I call:
set the textFont of stack "main" to "myfont"
It's only using the bold version (probably because it's first
alphabetically). Is there a way to map a font to a style so that text is "
myfont-Regular" and bold text is "myfont-bold"?
