Why do fonts change sometimes while entering words?

    I had this happen a couple of times and just deleted what I wanted to post and read or logged off. I tried clicking the B above, to go back to the standard font, without any luck. Is there something else that needs to be clicked? I don't know if I did something to make the fonts change in the first place.

    Now I noticed this in someone else's post. His fonts changed down around the end of his post on the 8th line from the bottom where it says (equipment have ). Here is the link below.

    are you copying and pasting something by chance? I have noticed that if you do that, it is the font you are copying from...other than that, I do not believe fonts should change...the B would be to Bold something

    Why would the thread I referenced change like that? That is what I have experienced, I think. I wasn't copying and pasting, an it does not look like he did either. And this is not a major PITA, but I was curious, if I hit something by mistake. Could be I did something on my keyboard. It happens 2 to 3 times a year. I'm getting old, I guess everyone is.:laughing: Maybe I am going nuts.

    in the thread you referenced, it appears to me that the member that posted that, chose the "I" above which will italicize the font...when entering text/posting, the font should not change unless you choose to change it or, as I referenced, if you copied something with a different font style

    I just did that. And see if you click it again it goes back to the original. That sounds like the answer. Thanks. You restored my faith in my sanity.

    Most forums have shortcuts to change fonts too.

    If you are on a pc and press ctrl+i for example you'll switch to italics. Very easy to do this accidentally.
