Hi Samuel,

I can reproduce the issue too - unfortunately I doubt it's a Geany bug,
it's more probably a bug somewhere in Geany dependencies like GTK or pango
which unfortunately aren't very actively maintained for OS X.

There's one possible workaround - when you uninstall the bold variant of
the font from the system and only keep the "Book" one, the text isn't bold
any more. But depends whether you don't need the bold variant for something
