Emphasis and Styling
To make text bold, select it and press the B button on the keyboard toolbar, or wrap it in **double asterisks.**
To create italics, press I, or wrap the text in *single asterisks.*
To underline, press U, or wrap in _underscores_.
For bold italics, just wrap the text in ***triple asterisks.***
If you have a keyboard attached, your familiar keyboard shortcuts work as well:
- ⌘B for Bold
- ⌘I for Italics
- ⌘U for Underline
_*Don't hesitate* to mix and match **emphasis!**_
Emphasis doesn't work across line breaks, so these two lines won't be bold:
**AMITY ISLAND WELCOMES YOU**
You have to emphasize each line separately:
**AMITY ISLAND** **WELCOMES YOU**
Emphasis characters need to be alongside the emphasized text. The following does not display as italics:
The sign reads:* Beach Closed.*
To fix it, move the asterisk:
The sign reads: *Beach Closed.*
To convert text to UPPERCASE, select it and press the Cc button, or press ⌘K on your keyboard. Repeat this to cycle the selected text through UPPERCASE, lowercase, and sentence case.
When no text is selected, the Uppercase button will act on the current line.
