I have a weird problem on mac (OSX 10.7): any theme or font I choose - all fonts appear in bold. I sync all settings with Dropbox and on Windows 7 and Ubuntu the fonts are normal.

Don't know if it's an OSX problem or sublime, but did anyone run into this issue?

Uncheck "Use LCD font smoothing when available" in System Preferences > General then restart Sublime Text.


on retina screen, i was used "font_options": ["gray_antialias"] and got perfect result


I haven't expereinced this issue but it looks like in your sublime preferences you can define font options in which you can say no_bold

    // Valid options are "no_bold", "no_italic", "no_antialias", "gray_antialias",
    // "subpixel_antialias" and "no_round" (OS X only)
    "font_options": ["no_bold"]
