# Bold font and uarial

I found an old closed post related but without a satisfactory answer.

I have to prepare a document with some specific guidelines. 1) Font should be Arial 2) Titles should be 14pt and Bold 3) Rest of document 11pt

The \Large font size I suppose is close enough (would be nice to get it exact though). However, I am not able to get bold fonts. Does uarial have this ability? How about italic style too?

Here is a mwe

\documentclass[11pt]{article}

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[scaled]{uarial}
\renewcommand*\familydefault{\sfdefault}

\begin{document}

\begin{center}
{\Large {\textbf{Should be Bold and 14pt}}}
\end{center}

Text here at 11pt \\
\emph{italic text}

\end{document}

{\fontsize{14}{17}\selectfont \textbf{Should be Bold and 14pt}} works for me. –  Harish Kumar Oct 22 '13 at 14:37
Thanks for the quick reply! When I try that it does not look bold to me. The font looks a little larger that the \Large too (which is strange, since I thought \Large was like 14.4pt or near that). –  1yen Oct 22 '13 at 14:41
It should be bold (and look very different than a text set simply with \Large). The emph-text should be slanted. If it doesn't for you you should show your log-file. –  Ulrike Fischer Oct 22 '13 at 14:50
ok..I think my problem is I have not installed these fonts correctly. I am now trying to figure out how to do that...thanks! –  1yen Oct 22 '13 at 15:02

See the difference:

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[scaled]{uarial}
\renewcommand*\familydefault{\sfdefault}

\begin{document}

\begin{center}
{\fontsize{14}{17}\selectfont \textbf{Should be Bold and 14pt}}\par
{\fontsize{14}{17}\selectfont Shouldn't be Bold but 14pt}\par
{\Large Shouldn't be Bold but 14pt}
\end{center}
