is there a way to make fonts in bold face? There appears to be no easy way to make this happen. For those with aging eyes the ability to make fonts bolder would be extremely helpful.

    There is no way to make the fonts bold.

    Many have found using a theme like High contrast, which makes the text darker, along with making the text slightly bigger works for them.

    Thanks DWG. Missing functionality that should be available in any purchased software for those with vision issues. Seems to me like a missed opportunity.

    You may like to try Dark Mode, if you haven’t already. This gives Bold white text on a Black background. The text is much bolder than in any other built in theme.

    You get to it via Preferences –>General-→ Theme. Click OK & Restart Moneydance to see the changes, you can change the Font Size there as well.

    When my eyes are tired I prefer Dark Mode particularity in the Evening. If you dislike Dark Mode you can go back & select another theme. Just remember to restart Moneydance each time.
