Hello, thank you for the report, it was unexpected.
We updated the Qt framework (which renders everything in the app) because the fonts became bold and blurry after update to 10.14.

Sergey means that before 10.14, with our old QT 5.6 for years Valentina Studio did draw fonts as you complain now.

With 10.14, Vstudio wrongly have start draw fonts in bold (some QT issues)

In new QT 5.12 they have fixed this. So we upgrade

and now vstudio 9 draw fonts correctly. This is not a bug.

in Prefs of Valentina Studio exists panel Fonts, where you can choose styles of fonts for different areas of app

Looks like it is improved in Qt 5.12.1

This font issue appears no matter which fonts are selected in VS9 preferences.

I'm unsure what you mean about QT 5.6. I have been using VS since 2013 with OSX 10.8 and don't recall ever seeing this type of problem.

It is definitely an issue for me. I think the screenshot speaks for itself. No other applications exhibit this behaviour on my computer.

The issues began with an update to macOS 10.14.
We'll update Qt framework to the latest version and release a new version shortly.
