As explained on the first post, you add the BBcodes to make the text Bold or Italic in reviews. You highlight the text, and then click the B or i buttons at the top when using the Full Editor. It easier to apply via a PC.

If you want to bold or make any text italic. This is how you do it; place the words between . It's like quoting something "the word you want bold or italics then close using [/b] or [/I] to close and or in this case is the opening quotation"

I'm doing these on a kindle, which does not have the symbols to create the italic and bold type. Any idea how to do that then?

You can't write reviews on a kindle. You will have to use a PC or a cell.
