 Something appears to have changed since updated to Mojave. I want the font styles of labels in plots to be Regular or Plain but they render on screen as Bold. When I export a plot as PDF or copy as PDF, the labels are bold. How do I get the labels to render as Plain?Here is a simple plot like I used to do. The font weight is not specified. The plot renders with Bold labels on my MacBook Pro. Plot[x^2, {x, -10, 10}, LabelStyle -> {FontFamily -> "Georgia", FontSize -> 18, FontColor -> Black}, ImageSize -> 540] The same plot with Plain for font weight still renders as bold. Plot[x^2, {x, -10, 10}, LabelStyle -> {FontFamily -> "Georgia", FontSize -> 18, FontWeight -> Plain, FontColor -> Black}, ImageSize -> 540] How can I get regular or plain font weights?Greg Attachments:

 Thanks Neil,Your fix appears to use JPEG, PNG, and TIFF. I'd much rather stick with PDF to be able to scale the images nicely.Regards,Greg
