All Font style in source insight is "Bold"

Hi Crossover team.

I installed source insight v3.5 on Ubuntu via crossover v16.

It works well , but something make me painful, that is,

whichever font type I pick-up in source insight, after I apply the font,
the font style is pretty "Bold" (compared to souce insight installed in windows)

Any idea?
Thank you.

Do you have all the fonts completely installed in your system? If you try to use these fonts in a Linux native program (let's say LibreOffice or OpenOffice, for example) do they work correctly?

Thank you.

That gave me idea to install fonts (true type font:Arial, Courier) into same bottle.
(software installer->Non-application->Components->Fonts)
After installation, I can see these two fonts exists in my bottle.

Then I changed fonts to them in source insight, I cannot tell any difference on different fonts).

Do I need to copy fonts files from windows into Crossover?
Or What is formal steps to install fonts for my application ?

As far as I know, in wine (and probably in a CrossOver bottle), you must have fonts installed in your system folder (/usr/share/fonts), your home folder (/home/yourusername/.fonts) or your wine/CrossOverBottle folder (e.g. ~/.cxoffice/Microsoft_Office_2010/drive_c/windows/Fonts).

First things first: do you have ttf-mscorefonts-installer (this is the name for Ubuntu variants) package installed in your Linux ? If so, try reinstalling it.
