      Sometimes copying and pasting can stuff up some of the formatting. Try editing it, turning on bold, italics and underline, then turning them off. That's worked for me in the past.

        It won't come out of the bold still after and its in paragraph.

    or check in Edit to make sure the format is paragraph and not one of the headings. some of your text looks the same size as the heading.

    this is going to sound weird but it works- highlight the whole text, then go to that little drop down menu in the capsule that says 'paragraph' bring down the menu then click 'preformatted'. With the text still highlighted, click 'paragraph' again on that same menu. Then highlight it all again, or just the words you want to change and click the bold option if they haven't changed already. Sometimes clicking back and forth between the options on the format menu will allow you to change the bold, italics, underlined stuff from copying and pasting.

      Ok I tried that its still not working is this going to make my hub less valuable to readers or Google?

    Yes, you could try what WryLilt says and while you are at it it would help to check if you are in the preformatted mode, changing that could also help. smile Welcome to HP wink

    If nothing is working, it would be best to e-mail the staff directly and see if they can figure it out.  It sounds like a glitch of some kind.

    It may very well make the hub less valuable.  Too much bold type gets negative attention.

    I don't think it would make a difference to google, but some people don't like reading bold print.

    Did you try going into Edit, highlight and click Paragraph under Format?

    Actually, here's another thought.  Do you ever use the HTML editor when you are in edit mode?  It would be tedious to do (if this works), because you would have to check each capsule separately, but you could see if there is any code in the HTML editor that is telling it to go bold.  If it's there, just remove it.  You could try that with one capsule and see whether it would change that capsule, as a test.
