Remove boldening on the 2nd item in Gantt chart

I apologise if this is a simple question; I am new to using smartsheet.


For the Gantt chart attached, I notice that the 2nd row on the Gantt chart has bold text; how do I go about removing this?


For context, the Gantt chart refers to a project that consists of 3 mini projects within it (in grey). And the constituents of each mini project are in green.


Hopefully I have made the issue clear; I would like to keep the bold on the first row but remove it on the second row (grey).


Thank you.

    Unfortunately (based on a lot of questions/comments), we don't have the abillity to do a lot of formatting in the Gantt chart area (yet).

    That's unfortunate. Thank you anyway. Strange that the second row is automically bold.

    Hi Hemant - I think you may have discovered a bug!


    In Smartsheet, you cannot format the text in the Gantt chart. But you can apply formatting to the entire row by clicking on the row number, then changing the format.


    For example, click on the row number and select Bold. The entire row will be bold, except the Gantt chart text.


    When you export to a PDF, it looks just like the sheet. But when you export the Gantt to an image, the text format is applied to the Gantt chart text. Im going to reach out to our QA team to let them know.


    Thanks for pointing this out!


    To remove the formatting, click on the row number and click the bold button - this should remove the bold from the entire row. If you want to just bold the grid, highlight the cells and select bold.
