I want to use Montserrat ExtraLight as the main font of my report and because the default bold style is too bold, I would like to use Montserrat Regular as bold style. I am using \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} and \usepackage[defaultfam,extralight,tabular,lining]{montserrat}.

Could you help me what I should change to use Montserrat Regular as bold font?

Cheers, Marina

  • One option is to use XeLaTeX / LuaTeX and to specify the bold font explicitly with fontspec. – Oleg Lobachev May 18 '19 at 10:19
  • Thanks! Can I use also Montserrat as math font? – Marina May 18 '19 at 10:26

There is no package option for this, but you can use a lower level setting.




Normal text (should be extralight)

\textbf{Boldface text} (should be medium)
