# Make text heavier using pdfrender for article thanks field and pagenumbers

I want to make text heavier with pdfrender package for printing on laser printer. But field thanks and pagenumbers does not havier then other text. Is this a bug or imperfection of package or I should to change code from article.cls?

% !TeX program = pdflatex
% !TeX encoding = utf8

\documentclass[]{article}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{pdfrender}
\title{Rendering}
\author{A. U. Thor\thanks{Def}}
\pdfrender{TextRenderingMode=2,LineWidth=1pt}
\begin{document}

\maketitle

\begin{abstract}
\lipsum[1]
\end{abstract}

\lipsum[2-3]

\end{document}


• Your question is a bit confusing: you're talking about a "thanks" field but in your code there is none, you're talking about missing page numbers but in your screenshot they are there. Could you please explain a bit better what you are asking, with code showing actually what you are trying to do? – Superuser27 Mar 15 at 6:57
• @Superuser27 I try to make the text of pdf much bolder for printing. As you can see from screenshot, pdfrender package do this, but only for text, but not for thanks and pagenumber – sergiokapone Mar 15 at 7:01

From the author of the pdfrender package himself:

It's a feature. Package pdfrender redefines \normalcolor to reset the "normal" behavior. For example, there is some emphasized text via \pdfrender and a page break occurs. Then the header and footer should have normal rendering.

But you can still change that:

\documentclass[]{article}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{pdfrender}
\title{Rendering}
\author{A. U. Thor\thanks{Def}}
\makeatletter
\let\normalrender\PdfRender@NormalColorHook
\let\PdfRender@NormalColorHook\@empty         %redefine to do nothing
\newcommand*{\textnormalrender}[1]{           %so it doesn't switch back to \normalcolor
\begingroup\normalrender#1\endgroup
}
\makeatother

\pdfrender{TextRenderingMode=2,LineWidth=1pt}
\begin{document}

\maketitle

\begin{abstract}
\lipsum[1]
\end{abstract}

\lipsum[2-3]

\end{document}
