Bold text displays in back instead of selected color

Bobbie Omps Harper
Hello,
 I am using Apache OpenOffice 4.1.3 on a Mac running Safari 12.0. When I bold text it only appears in black and not the color I selected. When I unbold the text, the color is what was selected.
PLEASE HELP!

Safari is a browser and has nothing to do with OpenOffice.

Making text Bold can be done in different ways if you select a character format with a Font Effects other than automatic it takes the colour as set in the Style.
But because you don’t explain how you make the text bold it is only guessing.

It transpires that the questioner was using fonts that are supplied
with macOS only in regular style, not bold (or italic). See
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_typefaces_included_with_macOS .
And the way that OpenOffice fudges bold from regular fonts creates an
outline that stays black when the underlying character is coloured.
See https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=127270 - especially the
middle attachment.
