Possible Bug with SharePoint Hyperlink Column and Format This Column

New Contributor

How to reproduce:


Environment: SharePoint Online - Modern Communication Site Registered as a Hub (Targeted Release)


1. Create a new Hyperlink column in a modern SPO list.

2. Add an item and make sure to completely fill out URL AND alternate text - you will notice that a hyperlink is created in the column and it is indeed clickable. This is to be expected.

3. Go to column settings/format this column.

4. Manage the default rule so that the text has no fill and is bold (more styles).


You will now notice that the text is bold; however, it is no longer a hyperlink and therefore no longer clickable.


Is this by design or is it a bug?

I would say this seems to be a bug
