When I type the ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS page using bold font, the following text is still bold while it should be normal (not bold). I used this code:

\thispagestyle{fancy}
\rhead{\thepage}  % Sets the right side header to show the page number
\addtolength{\voffset}{0.07in}
\addtolength{\textheight}{1in}
\begin{center}{\normalsize{\bf ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS} \par}\end{center}
{\normalsize
\vspace*{0.35\baselineskip}
\setstretch{0.95}
  First, I am grateful to GOD bla bla bla }
\clearpage  % Declaration ended, now start a new page
\cleardoublepage

You have at least 4 main ways to have some text in bold:

  • \textbf{Bold text is here}
  • {\bfseries Bold text is here}
  • \bfseries Bold text is here \mdseries
  • \begin{bfseries} Bold text is here \end{bfseries}

As said by David Carlisle, you should not use \bf but \bfseries instead.

  • Yes, your answer was more than perfect. Thank you, I used the third option of your answer. – Montadar Jul 11 '13 at 15:44
  • @Montadar Use neither the third option, nor the fourth. The first is to be preferred, without any doubt. – egreg Sep 18 '13 at 22:25
