Hi EJ,
	We put out 2D Labels as a usable but unfinished tool.  Anticipated  
improvements include: changing fonts; bold/italics; Greek characters;  
angstrom/degree symbols; arrows; imported images; and justification  
control for multi-line labels (roughly in priority order).   
Unfortunately each Chimera developer has about a dozen balls in the  
air and another half-dozen dropped balls bouncing on the ground.   
Finishing 2D Labels is one of the "dropped balls" for me currently.   
I will try to up the priority of getting these improvements included,  
but even then it will be behind several other projects for now.
	If you are willing to edit Python code (which is plain text), you  
can make _all_ 2D Labels be bold by changing line 69 of <your chimera  
installation>/share/Ilabel/Label.py so that this part:  
"style=chimera.OGLFont.normal" is instead:  
"style=chimera.OGLFont.bold".  If you are on a Mac, you will have to  
right-click on Chimera.app in the Finder and choose "Show Package  
Contents" to get to the file, and it's location will be Contents/
