TroubleShoot: Lucida Sans font jumps if bold

From Draftsperson.net

Problem: Lucida Sans font in some families 'jumps' up when the bold button is ticked. other similar workstations do not have that issue. You can see in the image below. the text should be central to the grid circle. If I tick off the bold option the text returns to the correction location.

Workstation Specs: Revit Structure 2010, Windows 7

Solution: Remove the Lucida Sans font from your computer. Copy the font files from a 'working' computer and install them on your computer.
