Are there keyboard shortcuts for bolding or italicizing?


I use the web app for editing markdown files. However, I notice that there are no keyboard shortcuts for generic tools like marking a word or phrase in bold or italics. For example, if a word is highlighted and I press CTRL + b, I’d like to see that word to have double asterisks (**) before and after (which indicates bolding).

I definitely would love to see this feature rolled out!


You can use ctrl+shift+b for bold, ctrl+shift+i for italics, and so on. The list of available kb shortcuts is in the default settings tab in the settings menu.

hope that helps! :grinning:
