All:

What is the function of the bold type in the NASB 1995?  Some words or verses are in bold type (e.g. read Job 8).  Thanks and God bless you.

I can't see any bold type in Job 8 in NASB

Are you able to post a screenshot (using the paperclip icon in the forum editor) showing what you are seeing

The bold is not part of the NASB.  It is from the "Discourse features (Hebrew)" visual filter and indicates "Main Clause Emphasis".  You can turn it on and off in the visual filters menu (three dots).

4.1.      Main Clause Emphasis
    Definition
Describes the variation of the word order so that the most important element(s) of the main clause holds a position of prominence to attract extra attention. The scope of the emphasis extends over the main clause on the same propositional level of the discourse.
    Explanation
Emphasis is placing what is the most important part of a clause in a special position to attract extra attention to it. The importance of the information is determined by the context, not by its position in the clause. In the following examples, emphasis is indicated by the increased font size in Hebrew and bolding in English.
