Introduction: How to Do Word Formating on Instructables

Picture of How to Do Word Formating on Instructables
On this instructable, I will show my "secrets" of word formating on instructables.
I am doing this to end all of the people that is begging on comments on how to format a word, like a lot of people wants to know how to do monospace text but they don't know how to make it or format it properly...
I will show you how to do it.

Heres a list of formatted words that I will show you how to make it.

Italic text

Bold text

Big text


Small text
Very small text
strikethrough text

  • Bullet points

(upside down text)
Monospace

Step 1: Italic Text

Picture of Italic Text
Making italic text is easy, put two apostrophe on both side of a sentence.

Type it in plain text like this.
''This is italic text.''
And you will get this.

This is italic text.

Step 2: Bold Text

Picture of Bold Text
Making bold text is similar making italic text, but with an extra apostrophe on both side of a sentence.

Type it in plain text like this.
'''This is bold text.'''
And you will get this.

This is bold text.

Step 3: Big Text

Using big text is fun! To make it, put an equal on both side of a sentence.

Type it in plain text like this.
=This is big text.=
And you will get this.

This is big text.


If you add more equals on both sides of a sentence, the size of the text will be different...

This is big text.

This is big text.


Please note making big text in comments will not work, it used to work, but not any more...

Step 4: Small Text

Picture of Small Text
Making small text can be also fun...

To make it, put a caret on both side of a sentence.
OR
You can put two [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comma_(punctuation) comma] on both side of a sentence.
OR
You can put five equals on both side of a sentence.

Type it in plain text like this.
^This is small text.^,,This is small text.,,=====This is small text=====
And you will get this.

This is small text.
This is small text.
This is small text

Step 5: Strikethrough Text

Strikethrough text is a pretty cool text to use...

To make it, put two tilde on both sides of a sentence.

Type it in plain text like this.
~~Strikethrough text~~
And you will get this.

Strikethrough text

Step 6: Bullet Point

Picture of Bullet Point
This text is really useful when you need to make a list-of-things-you-need on instructables...
And I don't know what is this type of text is called, please tell me if you know.

To make it, put one asterisk on the front of a sentence with a space.

Type it in plain text like this.
* Bullet point
And you will get this.

  • Bullet point

Step 7: Upside Down Text

Picture of Upside Down Text

Okay, this type is really cool! Upside down text!
Unfortunately, this type of text only works for comments. :(

Go to THIS site, type what you want to say, then, copy the translated text, and paste it onto comments.

If you put the upside down text onto an instructable, you will get bugs...

Step 8: Monospace Text...

Picture of Monospace Text...
Okay, this is the last word formating on instructables I know of, Monospace text...
It is a bit tricky to make monospace text, but once you learn how to make it, you will remember it!

Okay, first make three of those brackets ( {{{ ),
hit "return",
then type what ever you want to say,
hit "return" again,
then make three more of those brackets ( }}} ).
And you are done!

It should look something like this...
[[[
Monospace text
]]]
But! Use only this kind of bracket ( } ) NOT this kind ( ] ), otherwise it will not work!
So if everything works out, you should get this...
Monospace text
Yay! Now you know how to do it! You now can type like Instructable robot always does!

Step 9: Well, Thats It!

Picture of Well, Thats It!
Well, that all of the text formating on instructables for now!
If you know any more, PLEASE tell me and I will edit this instructable, so we all know how to do it! :)

If you find any problems in this instructable, please tell me and I will fix it.

Well,

Plasmana (author)KnexFreek2009-10-06

The big text will only work for your instructables, but It will not work on comments.
