xfakebold – Fake a regular font for bold characters

This pack­age uses PDF’s text ren­der­ing to mod­ify the linewidth of an out­line font to get bold char­ac­ters. It works only for vec­tor­fonts where the glyphs are de­fined by their out­line.

The pack­age works both in text and in math mode, for pdf as well as for Lua.

The pack­age de­pends on iflu­a­tex, ifx­e­tex, and xkey­val.
