I'm compiling in TexStudio on my PC and Mac. The produced PDF of the Mac is correct but the same document on PC is all bold. PC is using MikTex, Mac is using MacTex.

It is a .tex document with a .cls class.

I thought the problem was with using {\bf} vs {\bfseries} as per "Correct" way to bold/italicize text?. So I converted all \bf to \bfseries.

Below is code that might be useful or not.

.tex Code:

\documentclass{resume} % Use the custom resume.cls style

\usepackage[left=0.5in,top=0.5in,right=0.5in,bottom=0.5in]{geometry} % Document margins

.cls Code:

\ProvidesClass{resume}[2010/07/10 v0.9 Resume class]

\LoadClass[10pt,letterpaper]{article} % Font size and paper type

\usepackage[parfill]{parskip} % Remove paragraph indentation
\usepackage{array} % Required for boldface (\bf and \bfseries) tabular columns
\usepackage{ifthen} % Required for ifthenelse statements

    please show a small but complete document that has bold text that you think should not be bold. Impossible to debug the fragments shown. Note \bf has not been defined by default in latex for nearly 30 years Jul 24 at 23:17
