A couple of the most familiar functions in the editor toolbar are bold and italic text formats. These buttons are located between the superscript and quote buttons on the toolbar. 

The "B" and "I" icon are hightlighted for bold and italic.

To bold or italicize your text, select the portion you would like to format and click the corresponding button. Below is an example of the bold and italic options, showing how they will appear. In the first example, the word "chocolate" has the bold format. In the next example, the word "cake" is in the italic format.

The "B" icon is active, and the example text is bolded.    The "I" icon is active and the example text is italicized.
