Have you ever wondered, how some people can write a comment on Youtube in bold font?
In fact, YouTube allows adding some simple text formatting while making a comment.
However, this video platform is using special symbols to format the comments, so don’t expect to see any formatting toolbar.
In this article, you will learn how simple it is to make a comment on YouTube in bold, italics, and strikethrough.
To write a comment as bold on Youtube, you have to use an asterisk symbol * (small starlike symbol) on both sides of your text or word. Here is an example:
These videos are *incredibly interesting*
If you paste the example of text above into a comment field on YouTube, you should see the bold words parts converted to bold. If you are using the asterisk symbol only for a word or part of the sentence, the rest of your text will remain in the regular font.
Make a comment in italics on YouTube
If you want to make your comment in italics, you have to use an underscore symbol _ on both sides of the text, or word. Here is an example:
These videos are _incredibly interesting_
If you paste the example of the text above into a YouTube comment field, you will see the italics words or sentences. If you are using the underscore symbol only for a word or part of the sentence, the rest of your text will remain in the regular font.
Write a strikethrough comment on YouTube
Also for writing the strikethrough text you have to use a special symbol. In this case, you need to use a dash – on both sides of your text or word. Here is an example:
These videos are -incredibly interesting-
Make a bold, italics and strikethrough in one YouTube comment
If you for some reason want to use more than one text formatting in your comment, you can. You have even the option to make the same word in bold, italics, and strikethrough. Here is an example:
These videos are *_incredibly interesting_*
