Apologies in advance, I am an Adobe Illustrator novice and am having an extremely difficult time transforming the Myriad Pro text into bold headers for my document. When I follow the steps posted online, I get an 'inkblot' shape, rather than bold text:

1. Select text using 'V'
2. type -> create outlines
3. object -> path -> offset path
4. Select Offset: 0.4cm, Joins: Miter, Miter limit: 4

Any advice is appreciated!

That should work, I don't know why it is not. You could also add a stroke of the same color to the type for a bold effect.
