Default font "weight" (thickness)

When editing font properties, i only see the options "Regular" and "Bold".
I want something between those.
Some research showed it's a property commonly called "Weight" but i don't
see such option in ms-word!

Is there a way in ms-word to change it?

Thanks a lot for assistance.

Thumbs up Answer: font "weight" (thickness)

Yes, there is a way to change the font weight in Microsoft Word, even if you don't see the "Weight" option. Here's how:
  1. Select the text you want to change the font weight for.
  2. Click on the "Home" tab in the ribbon at the top of the screen.
  3. In the "Font" section, click on the small arrow in the bottom right corner to open the "Font" dialog box.
  4. In the "Font" dialog box, click on the "Advanced" tab.
  5. In the "Advanced" tab, you will see a "Scale" option. This option allows you to adjust the font weight by a percentage. For example, if you want a font that is slightly heavier than "Regular" but not as heavy as "Bold", you could try setting the scale to 110% or 120%.
  6. Once you have adjusted the scale to your liking, click "OK" to apply the changes to your selected text.

Keep in mind that not all fonts will respond the same way to the "Scale" option, so you may need to experiment a bit to find the right balance for your particular font. Also, be careful not to overdo it with the font weight, as text that is too heavy can be difficult to read.

Unless the font in question has a demibold variant, you won't be able to do
this in Word (and you'll need to accomplish it even then by applying that
specific font rather than by using Word's built-in font properties.
