Ahh to post a reply here you can go into this Full Edit/Preview box/option. The B and I are right above the box. Where do you find that option on the Streamlined Review Submission Form? I placed my review in the box that pops up when you choose that ⬆️ option. It was saved to drafts. I hit Edit Draft and the box pops back up with my review in. Above that box is the instructions and link that brings you here.... None of that answers the question of, where is THIS box with THESE options on THAT page. I see why some people have just stuck their review in here. Am I to just type this in that box (edit/preview) before and after what needs to be bold and italicized? I can highlight, cut, copy, paste, select all....but to where? There's no place on my tablet to put a code in and hit enter. I agree that one should be able to write it up in Microsoft Office, Word, OneNote and then be able to copy/paste review into said box. Compatibility is so very nice. I hate to keep asking for extensions...I'm sure there is a limit to that?

The BBCode shortcuts have not yet been added to the new review submission form. This means that, for the time being, you need to manually type the code in when submitting a review. :tiphat:

I am so confused about how to make the text bold and/or italic. Do I highlight the text and then what?
