Weight of text characters. MATLAB uses this property to select a
font from those available on your particular system. Setting this
property to bold causes MATLAB to use a bold version of the font,
when it is available on your system.
uicontrol( 'style', 'text', 'string', 'abcd1234', 'fontweight', 'bold' )

Try this (untested)
set(handles.text1, 'FontWeight', 'Bold');

For me the easiest solution I found is also described in the TextBox Properties documentation page from Matlab. I just added
to my annotation box. Although this is not specifically mentioned in the annotation documentation it works fine. So I ended up with the following line:
dim = [.825 .2 .8 .65];

There are a lot of things you can change. They're not all explicitly spelled out in the annotation documentation but it is mentioned like this:
Each type of annotation object supports a different set of properties. For a full list of properties and descriptions for each type, see the associated property page.
So it's not mentioned explicitly -- it's there, but there's an additional click you have to do.
