You can make changes to the style or appearance of text. Highlight the text you want to alter and select the text style from the drop down menu:

  • Bold - makes the text bold.
  • Italic - makes the text italic.
  • Superscript - turns text into a superscript.
  • Subscript - turns the text into a subscript.
  • Strikethrough - puts a line through the text.
  • Computer code[1] - inserts HTML tags <code> and </code> around text you highlighted, which changes the default setting of the font.
  • Underline - draws a line under text.
  • Language[2] - changes language using ISO[3] coding such as "en" for English.
  • Big - makes the text larger.
  • Small - makes the text smaller.
  • Remove - removes any styling attached to the text other than default.


(Notice: You can also change style by using the Control key with another key such as a "i" to change text to italics.)
