Sets whether to use bold fonts.
The MBS Plugin uses bold font for brackets in syntax coloring, so you see it better.
You can disable that as some people have problems with brackets being invisible due to font problems.
This may happen more often on asian character sets like Japanese where OS X uses different fonts.


Disable bold font:

MBS( "SyntaxColoring.SetUseBoldFont"; 0 )

Enable bold font:

MBS( "SyntaxColoring.SetUseBoldFont"; 1 )
