Short answer: you do not have 3DLET-italic font installed. Something 
else is substituted.

Long answer: Normally fonts come in at least 4 variants normal, italic, 
bold, bold-italic. Then if you select for example italic - italic 
version of the font is used. The problem arises when you do not have 
italic variant. What font to use then?

The best solution is to limit possible font variants in GUI. For example 
when you select 3DLET you cant select neither bold nor italic. But there 
are more than 4 variants of fonts possible - there are 11 weights and 4 
slants defined. This means redesign of GUI and compatibility issues with 
old projects.

The current solution is when you select bold or italic to substitute the 
font with first bold or italic font found. It works with ordinary fonts. 
But it may be quite confusing with extra fonts. For example you must 
select bold when you want to see Ampoule.
