Regular text bold text regular text
When I use this in my first review, all of the text after the command is bold or in italics in the preview. How do I 'turn it off' after the text that's supposed to have it?

This is really helpful. It's so exciting to get to use code! I can't wait to start writing.

I'm really getting confused over how to bolden or make my text italic. Do I press any of the buttons above. That is, the 'B' or 'I' buttons?
No. Follow the example below

I have seen people quoting sayings and parts of the book. I would like to know how theur quote 'jumps out' of the formatting as in your examples above. "So it does not read like this."

I am getting ready to enter my review on the streamlined review form. I do not understand the method of bold and italics. I have read the emails here and am still confused. Does it have anything to do with I am typing on an iPad? Please help.

Text you want bold. Regular text.

Duh. So I guess this means it won’t show up on the streamlined form until we hit the “Preview and Submit” button?
