# \textbf does not work insine \newcommand [duplicate]

I'm trying to make a new command, to add autoincrementing numbers to the definitions throughout my thesis. Here's what I have.

\newcounter{DefCounter}
\setcounter{DefCounter}{0}

\newcommand{\mydefinition}[1]{
\stepcounter{DefCounter}
\textbf{Определение \theDefCounter.}#1
}


When I use it like this: \mydefinition{DEFINITION BODY} I get the numbering right, but the Определение 1. text is not bold. What should I change to make this text bold?

• It's likely that the font you're using doesn't support have bold face. Are you able to have bold text with, say, \documentclass{article}\begin{document}\textbf{hello, world}\end{document}? – Sean Allred Mar 17 '15 at 1:45
