Step 1: Bold Text.

Put * before and after the word or sentence you wanna make bold. Notice the change occurs immediately after the second * however each must be immediately next to letters (no spaces).

Step 2: Italics Text.

Put _ before and after the word or sentence you wanna make italics. You may want to double space for the first underscore else this will happen_ as in jammed up too close to the word.

    if you use ~ each side of a word/sentence in the same way you use _underscore_ or *asterisk* it strikes a line though the text.

    you can also use them together for *_bold italic_* text

    So that's how it's done. I know how to do it in Youtube comments, but I know only how to italicize and bold on WhatsApp. Now I know!
