I'm using the acronym package. The first time I use the acronym the full name will be written. What I would like is to have the acronym in bold while the full name is NOT in bold is that possible?

Ex: I need: Kalman Filter (KF) but \textbf{\ac{KF}} gives: Kalman Filter (KF)

The format the first appearance of the short version is set with is \acfsfont. You can simply redefine it:


\newacro{KF}{Kilman Filter}


\ac{KF} \ac{KF}
