# Vertical text with both bold and italic options changes font

Not a Problem

I'm working on a mac, with the June 20, 2016 release of GeoGebra 5.0.253.0-3D.

I need to have vertical text set in both bold and italics.

Vertical text (entered either through RotateText or VerticalText) can be set in italics or bold with no problem, but when both are selected the font changes from the sans-serif text font to the default LaTeX font (Computer Modern). I am an experienced LaTeX user, and have tried all sorts of LaTeX commands within the text field (combinations of \textrm, \it, \boldsymbol, etc.) and the problem recurs every time.

Is there a way to work around this glitch? In the image below, both axis labels have been set to bold and italic type. I need the vertical axis to be labeled in the same sans serif font as the horizontal axis. If I un-bold the vertical label, it reverts to the correct font (but unbolded), and if I un-italicize the vertical label, it reverts to the correct font (but unitalicized).

You can do it with serif, but I don't think sans-serif is possible:

That's what I had assumed since I hadn't been able to make it work. Thanks for the reply.

And changing fonts, font size, position and so on - not using the web version but the Android app?

(using the web costs money - there aren't WLANs everywhere + most of my pupils don't have them)

=> the app must have the same comfort and possibilities (using commands....)
