# Bold font error

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
\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

• Please post a complete document that shows the problem, The bold fornt you have there is scoped by the braces, so your problem is in code not shown. Unrelated ut you shoul dnot use \bf in laTeX, \begin{center}{\normalsize{\bf ACKNOWLEDGMENTS} \par}\end{center} should be \begin{center}\normalsize\bfseries ACKNOWLEDGMENTS\end{center} – David Carlisle Jul 11 '13 at 15:29

• \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.
