how to stop text body format bolding?

I use text body for a daily document and some days it bolds. I can clear the bolding manually but do not WANT it bolded in the first place. Where do I fix this?

Do you mean the Text Body paragraph style? It is not configured for bold by default.

You may have added some Ctrl+B some time in your text. If you start typing where it is active, bold is applied for continuity reason .

Edit your question (do not use “Add Answer” which is reserved for solutions) to provide more details on your document and your way of typing. As usual, mention LO version and OS name.

Does selecting your text and Ctrl+M remove the bold attribute?

Open Tools > AutoCorrect > AutoCorrect Options, select the Options tab and untick both boxes labelled Automatic *bold*, /italic/, -strikeout- and _underline_. You can probably guess but if it is turned on and you type *anything* it will automatically be changed to bold, anything. Hope this helps, cheers, Al
