Ok, so if removing the force child expand doesn't fix it (it doesn't), what are my other options here? If i remove the bolding, everything works perfectly. is there a reason the preferred size calculations might be incorrect because of the way i've linked the bold font in there? before i linked the bold font in, the bolded text was all monospaced. Also, if i just click bold on the unbolded text, it thinks it needs an extra blank line.
