Is this code the same for a Mac? When I type Title of the book it doesn't italicize anything. What exactly am I doing wrong?

Take II... I am having difficulty with the bold/italic code. Is the code the same for a Mac? When I type The Title of the Book[i/] nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?

@Tradbowdiva

Your first post worked perfectly.
The second one didn't work because you reversed the 'i' and the '/' in the ending code.

It is the same no matter the device you use. :tiphat:

Ok..so it's not going to show up as bold or in italics on the review page? I assume since it worked on here, it will show up when I preview my review before submitting?

It has to be typed in manually when submitting a review. The shortcuts haven't been added yet.
However, as long as it's typed in correctly, it will work.
And you're welcome. :)

I am struggling to make words bold and Italic in my first ever review. Please clarify whether the 'bold' and 'italics' are visible in the review.
