    This is a known issue (for Boox, at least) since November 2019 at least (see http://bbs.onyx-international.com/t/onyx-boox-bug-all-fonts-bold-in-pocket-overdrive/1933 ).

    The update has now arrived (early May) and does NOT contain a fix, which disappoints me greatly. I probably won't buy from Boox again, though their devices are fine - the prospect of using O'Reilly on e-ink was what made me buy this device in the first place, reading epubs can be achieved much cheaper.

    2.3.1 also does not fix this bug.

    Since my Nova Pro apparently won't get updated to Android 9 (or anything >6) as promised last year, and this small bug causing big annoyance also didn't get fixed for almost a year now, I decided to scrap my Boox device.

    Got me a Boyue Likebook Ares now. Not any more expensive, very similar to the Boox devices, but they do upgrade their Android version (6 to 8 now) and the WebView doesn't render everything in Bold. Yay.

    I can only recommend leaving Boox for another brand.

    Regards,

    Torsten

    I have the same issue on my brand new Boox Note 3 after the current firmware update. Though this is irritating, I do not consider it a reason for returning the device. The normal reading apps (built-in PDF reader, Kindle, German online library epub) work well and that is what I was looking for: an e-ink device that supports all formats and is large enough to be useable for reading PDFs. I plan to use it for sheet music as well.
    Some of my bible reading apps apparently use web view and the font is forced to bold. The print admittedly looks ugly and I would be interested in a fix for this.
